Our guided historical Gisborne City Cultural Tour with our knowledgeable local guide takes you around the city and along the the rivers Taruheru and Waimata join to form the Tūranganui River. It is here that Kiwa, captain of the Horouta Waka made landfall along with the other migratory canoe the Takitimu.
New Zealand’s first European explorers arrived on 09 October 1769 aboard the Endeavor. Led by explorer Captain James Cook, they first spotted the white cliffs now called Young Nick’s Head. His first landing in New Zealand was on Kaiti Beach.
Taking you back 600yrs to learn about early Maori & European settlement, it is perfect for those who love history and the outdoors.
