Directions to Awa Korero River Walk Experience
Learn about Maori history and culture on a scenic walking tour with the Awa Korero River Walk Experience.
No visitor to New Zealand should leave without first experiencing some of the traditional Maori culture that helped shape modern day New Zealand society. Whakatane is not only one of the most beautiful areas of New Zealand, but also the richest in cultural history. There is no better place to explore the relationship between culture and land than here, and the Awa Korero River Walk Experience is the perfect way to do so.
The Awa Korero River Walk Experience takes you down the banks of the Whakatane River. Throughout the trip, your guide will tell you stories about the history and culture of the area, bringing the landscape to life. The stories will tell you a great deal about the way the landscape and historic events have been incorporated into legend and the importance of these legends to the Maori community.
Making use of traditional Maori instruments and engaging storytelling techniques, your guide will transport you through time as you visit sacred and important sites like an ancient burial cave and a fully carved Maori Waka (canoe).
The experience also includes the cultural history beyond the Whakatane riverfront - you will learn legends about nearby spots including Whakaari/White Island, Moutohora/Whale Island and Ohope Beach. This is a great chance for anyone planning on visiting White Island to learn about the island's place in Maori history and culture.
Adults: $65, Children (under 15): $40, Family Concession: Up to 2 children free with every 2 full paying adults. This includes Te Koputu Gallery Alive Experience.
