Pompallier Mission & Printery

Catholic brothers translated religious texts into Maori, printed them, and bound them into beautiful books.

In what is undoubtedly one of the best heritage tours in the country, our knowledgeable guides will take you through each step of leather and book-making as it was done by courageous French missionaries living in this tiny outpost, more than 150 years ago. Learn how to tan a hide, bind a book and more.
