Beautiful scenic views, Rewa's Village is the perfect place to visit if you are interested in Maori history, and is great for a family outing! Lovely outing and defiantly worth more than one visit!

We arrived out of season so expect it would be much improved at other times. Kerikeri had just had flooding the week before. If you are interested in Maori history - worth a visit

Another local Kerikeri initiative by local volunteers. Admission is by donation and well worth a visit. The village reconstruction is average, but the botanical walks are great and educational. There's also much to look at in adjacent parks, gardens and walks, so if the weather is nice, allow plenty of time in the area.

Reconstructions can be tacky but not this one. Trees were quietly labelled, little thatched houses stood quietly beside the path, birds sang. A very pleasant work in progress.

With the good signage that shows this place we expected to see far more of a fishing village as advertised. There were several structures, some being rebuilt and others looking in need of repair. Very little information and displays as to how people of those days fished.

Wonderful historic treasures in the gallery with good descriptions. The garden and walkways were a little tired and neglected for the entry price charged.

worth a visit, to see how the Maori's lived and the way they used the land and their knowledge of plants and their usage for medicinal purposes etc. Hidden away, we only came upon it by chance when we crossed over from the mission house, a little pricey, but the money is being used for further research and improvements to...

This Village is easily missed as it is a little hidden away, you tend to go to the mission house across river. It is a bit pricey for the time you are there but we were lucky enough to have one of the Maori land owners willing and wanting to answer our questions. The entry will be put to good... More

We visited this Maori village, which is opposite the Mission house and were amazed at how Maories lived in the 1800's. Well worth a visit.

First time back in about 10 years and it hasn't changed much. Not really worth $10pp to look around considering it takes about 15 minutes to cover fully. My advise is to go in after hours and put in $5.
