New Zealand Local Customs: 139 reviews and 123 photos

The Marae is regarded as a sacred meeting place. As a guide when visiting a Marae, you will be asked to remove your shoes. Photography is not normally allowed however the Marae at Waitangi does allow photography. If you are not sure, it is best to ask otherwise please respect all rules and traditions of the Marae and its people.
