Dreamworld's "Waitangi Weekend"


Recommended Posts

Dreamworld has since revealed that it will be celebrating a significant New Zealand holiday at the park next weekend.

And in all honesty, it may not be much but I'm genuinely keen on it.

Waitangi Weekend at Dreamworld

Join us for Waitangi Weekend and enjoy cultural performances and Kiwi eats in celebration of this New Zealand national holiday.

Saturday 5th Feb & Sunday 6th Feb, 10am - 5pm daily

See cultural dances and performances including a traditional haka as well as delicious Kiwi treats available for purchase, like Battered Hoki, Lamb & Beetroot Burgers, and L&P Soda.

All of this in celebration of the land of the long white cloud.

Waitangi Weekend is included FREE* with your Dreamworld Entry!

Keen to see plenty of Maori's there...

Considering there is an entire area dedicated specifically to the Indigenous Australian culture, I think it would be in incredibly poor taste to host an Australia Day event given the current climate... wouldn't you? 

Are you referring to Corroboree that was initially funded by the govt and now that the funding has ceased has recently been removed from the park with no references to it present anywhere anymore? If DW was truly interested in First Nations matters, it wouldn’t have rebadged Corroboree as “Wildlife”. If they want to make a stand on the Aus Day issue - don’t do it silently - explain why you are ignoring it and state your corporate support for #changethedate.

To my recollection none of our parks have ever had any Australia Day festivities, so there isn't a need to make a stand on the issue. No need to poke the bear.
