A cultural welcome to the Tuia 250 flotilla, led by Tangata whenua iwi, will be held at Meretoto/Ship Cove - to acknowledge Meretoto as the site of the significant on-shore First Encounters between Māori and Pākehā at Tōtaranui.
This event is part of the Tuia 250 Encounters programme.
Due to site restrictions, there is no public access to the reserve that day.
