Horizon Tours

Dunedin Culture in Context Tour

Dunedin 4 hours

Maori, are of Polynesian descent, a seafaring people who travelled to Aotearoa, New Zealand, many centuries ago. Take a half day journey with Horizon Tours and let our guides tell you stories of those voyages, and how these resourceful settlers thrived in new lands surrounded by unfamiliar flora and fauna. Explore the Otago Peninsula and discover some of the iconic sights of interest as we drive along scenic coastal roads. Learn how early Maori lived, their customs and traditions. Hear how they interacted with European settlers, and how the two cultures created the landscape you see today.

Itinerary

We start by introducing you to this Southern city by taking a quick look at some of the finer historic buildings in Dunedin before we make our way out to the Peninsula. We spend much of our time on the Otago Peninsula, a site favoured by Māori for its abundant food resources. Learn about Maori cultural ancestry and how our people travelled to Aotearoa or New Zealand, and where they settled on arrival. Understand the link between Maori and other Polynesian cultures in the South Pacific and their significance to New Zealand as a country today. We tour sites of significance to learn about how the early Maori settlers to Muaupoko, the Otago Peninsula, thrived and prospered in a new land for centuries before the arrival of Europeans.
