The cul­ture’s spell­bind­ing

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Travel -

Ahuriri Estes­tu­ary is a na­tional trea­sure, and for a per­sonal en­counter with Maori cul­ture, I took a walk­ing tour with fam­ily busi­ness Napier Maori Tours. Wear­ing sup­plied gum­boots, I trekked river­side ob­serv­ing tra­di­tional Maori food-gath­er­ing be­fore lunch­ing on lob­ster, scal­lop, abalone and other del­i­ca­cies while learn­ing about the lo­cal mu­sic and its in­stru­ments. You’ll also see loads of sea crea­tures and birds. The board­walk is a great way to ex­plore the es­tu­ary. See napier­maori­tours.co.nz for more de­tails.
