Tiritiri’s Tartan Taonga
Tiritiri Concert – 4th March
Catch the ferry to Tiritiri Matangi Island for an afternoon of wonderfully wild music in a stunning environment courtesy of OrigiNZ and Rob Thorne.
OrigiNZ is a 15 piece fusion band from Aotearoa New Zealand, featuring a wild array of instruments from Bagpipes (!) and percussion to trumpets and voice. They have taken traditional New Zealand and Celtic music and mixed it up into a sound that is loud, proud and unbowed. The result is a stunning mix of vocal and instrumental numbers that you will never forget.
Rob Thorne (Ngati Tumutumu) is a new and original voice in the evolving journey of taonga puoro (traditional Maori musical instruments). His sounds embrace the very essence of that fascinating and mysterious Polynesia where the endless sea joins the sky.
Arrive on the special concert ferry that will leave Auckland at 1.00pm and travel via Gulf Harbour at 1:50pm arriving on Tiritiri at 2:20pm.
Bring a picnic (there is no food sold on the Island).
The concert runs from 4:00pm to 6:30pm so there’s plenty of time for a walk with the birds and a swim beforehand.
Cost –Auckland $95 and Gulf Harbour $80 this includes the ferry and concert.
Visit the almost world-famous gift shop where all profits go to supporting conservation and education programmes.
The evening ferry leaves at 7:15pm to Gulf Harbour ONLY and at 8pm to Downtown Auckland ONLY.
