Tauranga Moana Waitangi Day Dawn Service
The Tauranga Moana Waitangi Day Dawn Service is an annual gathering held at Hopukiore (Mount Drury Reserve).
Waitangi Day is Aotearoa New Zealand’s national day and is our opportunity to gather to commemorate the first signing of our country’s founding document: Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the Treaty of Waitangi, on 6 February 1840.
The 2022 service was held at Whareroa Marae and livestreamed for the community to watch at home due to COVID-19 event gathering restrictions in place.
Due to poor weather, the 2023 service was broadcast live from Moana Radio and also livestreamed.
Both services can be viewed below:
