TRC Tourism is proud to have been the specialist consultants contracted to work alongside Air New Zealand and Activate Tairāwhiti to deliver this regional tourism development project referenced in the Air New Zealand 2019 Sustainability Report.

“Two Maori cultural tourism offerings, Maunga Hikurangi Experience and the Tairāwhiti Waka Hourua (double-hull sailing waka), deliver an authentic cultural experience the region’s visitors.  Both have received Qualmark Gold accreditation in their first year of operation, recognising their high level of professionalism, sustainability practices and customer-centric approach.  This is an outstanding achievement so early on in their development and operation.”
