Haka on the Park by The Haka Experience
The Haka Experience and Eden Park are excited to launch “Haka on the Park“, a joint venture between Eden Park and Te Wehi Haka.
As mentioned on the Tourism New Zealand website:
“Haka on the Park” is a new experience for people keen to learn the famous haka pre-match ritual and take a close-up look at New Zealand’s most popular sports ground.
With a Māori warrior guide, visitors are given a behind-the-scenes tour of the iconic Eden Park stadium before stepping onto the hallowed turf to learn and perform their own haka.
The thrill of walking in the footsteps of iconic sporting heroes and performing on the same field played by the mighty ALL BLACKS and BLACK CAPS has already captured the imagination of international visitors and proving to be a popular Auckland experience.

“I wanted to take this time to properly connect, the USANA family felt the aroha that’s for sure and that’s exactly what I had hoped for too! Some cried, many got emotional and some blown away literally!
The emotions that were spoken forward were a connection hundreds if not all, hadn’t felt in a very long time and ignited a ripple effect of hope and a sense of belonging too! Thank you very much.”
