Overview

Six nights a week the marae is transformed into a magical setting where performers from the Culture North night show tell visitors to Northland the real story of New Zealand. A contemporary production combining drama, music and dance, the show relates the traditional story of how two cultures; Maori and European, settled in New Zealand.

A very informative and inclusive show, entertaining at the same time as educating in history of our nation. Great the way they bring the kids in to be part of the show

Frommers had rated this 3 * and the cost was $65 per person. We were expecting a great show with cast members showing the Maori tatoos and costumes as shown in the Frommer's book. The cast consisted of mainly high school age people and none...More

Interesting history, but I could only understand a few of the actors. Many of them did not speak clearly. It was a one sided depiction of that time in history. The actors and director were very interested in what they were presenting and very friendly...More

I thought the show was very entertaining. Not just a performance of maori songs but a story telling the history of the area and people. An excellent way to share the maori culture with the world.

By the time you get here you may well have seen a "culture show" but this is different; it actually tells a story as seen through Maori eyes and is really worth a look. Not just singing and twirling balls!

I have been to this show a couple of times with visitors. Transport to the event is included in the price but when the bus does not stop to pick you up, as it can do, it rather puts a damper on the evening. This...More

This is an interesting way to learn about Maori history. The presentation is well done by some talented people. It was also nice to talk to the performers after the show and ask questions. The Treaty Grounds are lovely and well kept.
