A short comfortable drive from Hihi, we visited Rewa's Village in KeriKeri. This lush garden was full of New Zealand native plants, with a definite tropical feel. Walking through the grounds, gave a me a sense of satisfaction one needs to truely relax. We decided to eat at the small resturant garden cafe next to the Visitor Center. You will... More

Took overseas visitors here and was ashamed to say, having lived in the area for years, I had never visited it before. It started badly with the 'donation' being $10 p.p.fee but that taken care of we wandered off to follow the map around the site. Gardens were in a poor state and the huts not very inviting. The museum... More

We were greeted by a friendly staff person, expecting a charge of $4 as per the guide book. The charge is now $10, which is OK, but you really just wander in the woods with some signposts here and there. It might be better with a guide to share the information and make it more interesting.

According to my research this was entry by donation but when we arrived it was $27 family entry. While it was interesting there was not a lot to see and I thought it was a bit pricy for what was there and the time to view it (not long at all).

Good location near the Stone store and only $10. There's a good little museum and some recreated Maori huts on the site of a village. Staff are friendly and have a good knowledge of the site.

This is a very informative tour round the site of an old Maori fishing village. We had a look at some of the interesting artifacts & weapons, with some interesting stories to accompany them, but from then on it was downhill... (literally). We proceeded around some gardens, which looked like they hadn't been tended to in a while, the map... More

If you want to find out more about Maori culture when in New Zealand, Rewa's Village is a great place to visit. In my opinion, it just as nice spending some hours there as taking part in one of the very expensive "Maori experiences" in Rotorua.

Crossing the river from the Stone Shop I went for a dive in the past, visiting the Rewa Village. It was late in the afternoon and the guy taking care of the place was leaving, still he stopped for a chat and to give some info. It's a realistic reconstruction of the rough, hard way Maori lived before New Zealand... More
