Otamatea Marae is the tupuna marae (meeting grounds) for the Ngāti Whātua tribal people in Northland, New Zealand. It was established by order of the Māori Land Court in 1946. The main facilities cater for whanau meetings and gatherings, accommodation, cooking and church services.

Our client required a clean, informative website to help communicate their unique offerings to whānau and other groups including local and regional schools and organisations. The framework of the site was built on WordPress, with added website functionality required to facilitate live website bookings and a calendar of events.
