OverviewHide
Explore parts of New Zealand few visitors experience on this off-the-beaten-path excursion to Port Underwood. Begin with a narrated drive that hugs the coast to reach Karaka Point and stunning views overlooking Port Underwood. Visit this sheltered bay and learn about its significant role in New Zealand history as the site where the much-debated Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British Crown and Maori Chiefs, effectively declaring British sovereignty over the nation. You’ll also visit Kakapo Bay, a former whaling station where the hunt continued until the early 20th century. Follow the winding Port Underwood Road to witness coastal panoramas that have remained unchanged for generations. Visit a farmlet in Oyster Bay for tea, fresh biscuits, and the chance to chat with locals who make their livelihoods mussel farming. Afterwards, a scenic drive leads back to Picton, where you’ll enjoy some free time to browse the local shops.
