Visit heritage

Nau mai, haere mai | Welcome

E whakamātakitakitia ana ngā taonga tuku iho
Nō te whenua takapou whāriki
Nō te moana karohirohi
Nō ngā whakatipuranga o nanahi nei
Kua tārehua ki te pō

Whakatau mai ki tēnei whārangi ipurangi
O te Pouhere Taonga
E kitea ai ngā taonga o Aotearoa
Me he puna kahurangi tōna rite
E kore e mimiti noa

Displayed here are the heritage treasures
From the land spread below
And the shining ocean
From the generations of the past
Who have since passed on into night

Welcome to this website

In your search for the treasures of New Zealand
For it is like a precious spring
That shall never run dry
