A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Māori culture present in the Southern Hawke's Bay. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

A hill in southern Hawke's Bay can claim the world's longest place name. It refers to a local Māori ancestor, Tamatea, who played his flute to his loved one there. North of Waipawa is Te Aute College, a famous Māori boys' high school that has produced many influential leaders.
