Tiaki – Care for New Zealand

Nau mai, haere mai ki Aotearoa. Welcome to New Zealand.

New Zealand is precious, and everyone who lives and travels here has a responsibility to look after it. The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand, for now and for future generations.

In New Zealand we welcome manuhiri (guests) in the spirit of manaakitanga (respect, kindness and hospitality). Hear our call. Feel welcome.

We also present our visitors with a wero (challenge). This wero is a challenge and commitment to care for New Zealand. This wero is the Tiaki promise.

We encourage all visitors to pick up this wero. To follow the Tiaki Promise. To act as a guardian, protecting and preserving our home.

We are picking up this wero by looking after our people, place and culture. We are a living wage employer and support community initiatives. We undertake a range of sustainability initiatives and we are learning the stories of Wairarapa (glistening waters) so that we can share them with you, our guests.
