Freedom camping is permitted in many places in New Zealand but the rules vary in each community. To be certain about local camping regulations, we recommend you check out the freedomcamping.org website and get the Camping NZ or Camper Mate app. You can also ask at an i-SITE or Department of Conservation visitor centre or holiday park. #explorerespectNZ
Explore our unforgettable experiences and sacred sites. Be the first in the world to see the sun rise on the sacred site of Maunga Hikurangi or join us for a day experience. A Ngati Porou guide will transport you up the maunga to the sacred whakairo (carvings) and tell the stories representing Maui and Ngati Porou descendants.
You'll find the Morere Springs Scenic Reserve on State Highway 2 in the North Island, roughly 3 kilometres north of Nuhaka, 40 kilometres north-east of Wairoa and 60 kilometres south-west of Gisborne. This lovely reserve offers visitors the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate in natural hot mineral pools and explore the native forest on either easy-walking or challenging tramping tracks.
The North Island's highest non-volcanic peak (1,754 metres), Mount Hikurangi, is regarded as sacred by the Ngati Porou Maori of the region, who believe the mountain to be the resting place of Maui's waka (canoe). Traditionally the peak is regarded as the first land in the world to catch the dawn of the new day.
View the glow and richness of Maori traditions and culture forever preserved on DVD. See the Maori Haka, traditional welcome, and songs and dance. Travel back thousands of years to the coming of the Maori and watch their progress through the ages, their struggles in developing the land and the unfolding of their unique isolated culture.
Approximately 50km north-west from Gisborne is the small community of Rere. Heading down to the Wharekopae River will bring you to the Rere Falls and the Rere Rock Slide (we should mention that these are two different parts of the river just in case you're wondering if people really slide over the falls).
Our Waka Hourua ‘Tairāwhiti’ is named after the Tairāwhiti Gisborne/East Coast area - the coast where the sun shines. Tairāwhiti is a region of many firsts. In addition to welcoming the sun, Gisborne saw some of the first Māori to land after their epic Pacific navigations in the fourteenth century.
