From the iconic kiwi to tuna, to tuatara and takahē, you’ll walk away with a newfound appreciation for New Zealand’s precious taonga. The taiao has been the source of inspiration for Māori for thousands of years.
Te Wao Nui provides a hub to connect in nature together and encourage future generations to treasure and protect our natural world. Te Wao Nui was blessed by local Iwi, Ngāti Whātua o Orākei in 2012, and has become a must-see destination for all visitors to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
