We are a Mana Whenua Marae
We do take community bookings, the marae is available to hire by the hour, day, or for overnight stay.
Poowhiri on Makaurau Marae follow the kawa of Waikato Tainui – Tu Mai, Tu Atu (tauutuutu). Every group new to Makaurau Marae is required to have a poowhiri at the beginning of their stay.
We have a 40 space carpark at the rear of the marae available for your use, please observe all the designated spaces and NO parking areas, this can be securely locked at night.
Extra parking spaces are available on the road or in our other designated marae parking area in the vacant section across from the marae
