Date: Friday 20 November – Sunday 22 November
Hosts: Te Rūnanga o Moeraki, Te Rūnanga o Ōtākou me Kāti Huirapa Rūnaka ki Puketeraki.

Hui-ā-Iwi is only two months away and our hosts are busy getting everything ready for the arrival of whānau and manuhiri. If your whānau are from out of town and still require accommodation see the Ngāi Tahu website for a full list of accommodation options:

We are excited to announce the programme and all the scheduled activities for Hui-ā-Iwi. We are also working on a detailed booklet that will be available at the event.


Volunteers are at the heart of any event and we need your help. We want whānau or anyone who is interested to volunteer at Hui-ā-Iwi.

We have a long list of jobs that range from working at the hākari to helping kaumātua. Even if you can only dedicate half a day to volunteering, we want to hear from you. Please get in touch with us by emailing [email protected] or fill out a volunteering registration form on the Ngāi Tahu website.

Run your own stall at Hui-ā-Iwi

Is your rēwana bread the best in the land? Do you know a reka kaimoana recipe? Why not run your own trade stall at the Hui-ā-Iwi market. We still have powered and non-powered sites available, so think outside the box and get your ideas to Tina Woodgate by calling 0800 KAI TAHU or email [email protected]

Parking and shuttle services

Parking will be easy and there is free parking for whānau just 10 minutes away on Victoria Road. The team at GO Bus will be providing a free shuttle service to and from the venue every 15 minutes. There is also pay parking closer to the venue and all city car parking is free after 6pm and all day on Sundays.
