Tamaki Māori Village is the only cultural experience in New Zealand to be the recipient of the Supreme New Zealand Tourism Award. In 2018 our Evening Experience was voted as #7 Best Attraction in the world – Trip Advisor Travelers Choice Award. We are the most award-winning cultural experience in New Zealand.
Tamaki Māori Village is a fully recreated traditional village located 15kms south of Rotorua. Under the shelter of an ancient 200-year-old native Tawa forest we offer your manuhiri (visitors) an immersive, interactive and educational journey.
Nau mai, Haere mai, we welcome you to take a step back in time to experience what life was like for our people pre-European contact. Honoured traditions, stories, songs and performing arts of old remain prevalent to Maori today. Through the warmth, humour and manaakitanga (hospitality) shared by all of our whanau (family) Tamaki Māori Village are proud to share the journey of Maori with you.
