Toi Ora

Sports, recreation and cultural organisations

Activities and places that foster the social, physical and mental well-being of the people of Aotearoa. This includes sport and recreation organisations, as well as cultural organisations that welcome visiors and share or conserve our natural environment and culture (parks, zoos, galleries, libraries, archives and museums). Toi Ora is the sector that provides places and facilities for New Zealanders and visitors to engage with activities for relaxation, education, research, conservation, well-being and human connection. Of all the Toi Mai sectors, this has the greatest regional presence.
