Overview
From atop the iconic Te Mata Peak enjoy the panoramic views across the plains to the summits of the five pillars that hold up the heavens. It is the story of creation; ancient gods and rebellious offspring. Let a descendant of the legendary giant Te Mata, after whom the peak is named, provide their insider’s perspective to our local Maori People and relate stories of historical and contemporary Maori culture to provide you with their unique and personal point of view. After our visit to the Peak, let us head down and visit Civic Square in Hastings which has a fine display of carved pou (totems). Hear the stories of these ancestors and get to know more about the tribal history to date.
