Please note: we welcome and encourage manuhiri to Te Whare o Te Waipounamu. However, given recent events in Ōtautahi, we currently require all manuhiri, suppliers and customers to be pre-registered before arriving. This is for security purposes. If you have been invited to Te Whare by a staff member for a specific hui or event, you don’t need to do anything as they will pre-register you. If you do not have a hui or event to attend, please contact us on one of the numbers below to arrange your pre-registration or email [email protected] with your name, reason for visit and expected arrival time. When you arrive, you will be granted access to the building if you are pre-registered. If you need assistance, please call us on one of the numbers below.
