Welcome to Tamaki Maori Village - Rotorua

New Zealand’s Most Awarded Cultural Experience!

"BOOKING OFFICE" (Head Office)
 - 1220 Hinemaru Street, Rotorua 3010 (Meeting Point for guests)

Experience an evening of Ceremonial Ritual, Powerful Cultural Performance, Storytelling and Hangi Feasting. Share in the Powhiri, our ancient ceremony of welcome before entering our pre-European Maori Village nestled within a Native Tawa Forest. The village in Rotorua comes alive with sights, sounds and activity of days gone by including haka, poi, tattooing, weaving, carving and arts of warrior training. You will have the opportunity to participate in these activities.

Witness the earth being scraped away from the hangi pit to reveal baskets of food cooked beneath the ground on hot stones. 
Enter the ancestral meeting house and enjoy a powerful cultural performance, including action songs, poi, weaponry displays, storytelling and the spine tingling haka! At the conclusion of the performance, a short movie plays the past 150 years of our history, as we share the story of the survival of a very proud people.

Celebrate with us, as together we dine on the traditional hangi buffet feast followed by a substantial dessert buffet before the closing ceremony with speeches and songs of farewell before your entertaining journey home!
