Maori Culture

Tamaki Maori Village

New Zealand's Most Awarded Cultural Experience! Experience an evening of ceremonial ritual, amazing re-enactment, powerful cultural performance, storytelling & hangi feasting as we relive significant events within our Pre-European history!

Te Puia

Your guide or artisan in the carving and weaving schools is linked to generations of hosts who have led visitors through Te Whakarewarewa. Share with the Maori people the warmth and generosity of spirit known as manaakitanga, of caring and sharing.

JOur stories sit within the hearts and minds of our people - and will be shared by those who guide you through the Institute. The spirit of our land can be seen, felt and heard within the unique geothermal environment of Te Whakarewarewa.

Mitai Maori Village

Enter the world of Mitai- be enthralled by the natural bush setting, see warriors in traditional dress paddling a waka (ancient warrior war canoe) and don't miss your only opportunity in the Rotorua area to see glow worms. Marvel at the crystal clear water flowing directly from the earth at Fairy Springs.
