“Sharing the history and knowledge of our ancestral heritage”

Kia Orana and Welcome. Highland Paradise is the ancient ancestral settlement of the Tinomana tribe. Dating back to the late 1700’s, this tribal site hosts nearly 100 ancient stone structures which you will experience during your cultural tour.
