Truly one of New Zealand's most historic sites, it's the place where both Maori and European joined in signing the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. The Treaty House is located amongst a vast peaceful estate which includes a fully carved Maori Meeting House, one of the largest Maori War Canoes and a Visitor Centre and Gallery. The estate is a must see for any visitor interested in New Zealand's history and culture.
In the 1800s, there were over 100 Maori villages along the Haruru Falls river. Take a scenic walk to the falls or drive directly there to see this horseshoe shape waterfall- very rare and quite spectacular.
