Waitangi National Trust (Treaty House)

Ko Waitangi te pitowhenua, ko te Tiriti te kaihautu. Waitangi is the birthplace of the Nation and the Treaty is our Charter.

The Waitangi National Trust Estate is a 506 hectare estate situated in the beautiful Bay of Islands. This is the site where Te Tiriti o Waitangi was first signed on 6 February 1840.

Visitors see the restored Treaty House, the magnificently carved Māori meeting house Te Whare Runanga, and the Māori war canoe Ngatokimatawhaorua. The many displays and exhibits, and an audio-visual presentation on our bicultural history and taonga Māori provide an important insight into early New Zealand history.
