Waka Hourua/Clean Transport
WAKA HOURUA/CLEAN TRANSPORT
Get moving with sustainable transport
Waka Hourua are traditional double-hulled ocean voyaging vessels. On arrival, these vessels were split and the hulls used as waka pitau or coastal voyaging craft. By removing the bargeboards, waka tiwai or river vessels were created, which could be used to navigate inland waterways. The name Waka Hourua was chosen to represent Clean Transport as it reminds us of the great voyages made before the use of fossil fuels.
