For a slice of authentic Maori culture, a chance to witness the spectacular forces of nature at work and a range of outdoor adventure activities, visit Rotorua.
Rotorua is one of the original tourist destinations in New Zealand and has a history of welcoming visitors. From the moment people arrive in Rotorua they know they’re somewhere quite different. There is the scent of sulphur in the air and at nearby geothermal hotspots there are geysers spouting and mud pools bubbling.
With one third of New Zealand’s population being Maori, Rotorua is a strong hold of Maori culture, arts and crafts. There are many options to enjoy this culture in the numerous Maori villages, Maori performances and in a traditional hangi feast where food is cooked below the ground in an earthen oven.
