Koni-Leigh and her dad came to visit BUGS! Our Backyard Heroes and made an awesome video that shows off some of the critters we had staying with us, as well as teaching some Niuean terms along the way.
We were thrilled to receive our ‘Gold’ grade from Qualmark this year. Qualmark is New Zealand tourism’s official mark of quality and it means we’re a safe, clean and welcoming space that provides an awesome experience.
Q: What happens when you unleash a Collections Manager and an iconic local drag queen into the heritage shoe closet?

Preparing the historic Santa’s Cave to open with public health restrictions during a pandemic is a particularly poignant affair. Santa’s Cave began in 1918 as a response to the Flu Pandemic when the community came together to spread some kindness and good cheer. At a time when we need it more than ever, it has been a privilege for Te Manawa to keep that legacy alive.
Our best wishes from our whānau to yours after a year unlike any other.
Ngā mihi arohanui. Kia kaha tātou kātoa.
