Waikawa Marae sits at the entrance to the stunningly beautiful Tōtaranui (Queen Charlotte Sounds).  These are the waters our tūpuna travelled as they journeyed from Taranaki in the 1800s to make this place home.

The Marae is central to the functions of iwi and many community groups across Te Tau Ihu (Top-of-the-South) and is the perfect venue for hui, meetings, wānanga, conferences and celebrations.

Waikawa Marae is the Turangawaewae of descendants of Te Ātiawa ki Te Waka-a-Māui.  It is also home to many who come from other rohe throughout Aotearoa, who have lived amongst the tangata whenua for many years.

Waikawa Marae welcomes all people ahakoa ko wai, ahakoa nō hea, our place is for me, for you, for everyone – Mōu, mōku, mō ngā iwi katoa.
