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.

This attraction is quite simple and actually very well maintained given they run on donations and even offer after hours access. The gardens are nice and well kept and the maori displays very good and informative. Good quick insight into traditional maori life.

Had no idea this was here. We noticed it whilst visiting the Mission site opposite and called in. The site recreates typical Maori buildings and features in an informative way. Well worth a visit.

Such a great little tourist spot but it has been let go a bit. We got there after the info shop had closed but you can enter anyway and wander about which is good. The signs etc could do with replacing but the whare etc areI thought 'authentic'?!

Why is there no "good" rating? That would be my rating for Rewa's Village! While it's good to see and dirt-cheap (2 NZD into a honesty box), I was disappointed to see that the visitor centre was closed and there was no more information to be had than what's displayed on the signs. Don't get me wrong, the houses and... More
