A brilliant blend of Maori cultural and geothermal wonders. See Maori cultural performances, watch ancient Maori crafts being taught, discover a geothermal and natural wonderland, and get up close with endangered kiwi – a day at Te Puia is packed with amazing things to do. Te Puia is home to New Zealand’s official Maori cultural centre, The New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute. Its profits are used to nurture traditional Maori arts, including wood and greenstone (pounamu) carving, and flax weaving. And that’s not all. From bubbling mud pools and the mighty Pohutu geyser to our kiwi breeding programme, there’s something for everyone at this must-see attraction.
