I didn't think that this attraction was as well maintained as it should be. It definitely looked as thought it needed maintenance and repair to a number of the buildings. This was a pity, as a lot of visitors to the area would have looked forward to seeing this village. The ticket price was quite expensive. I don't believe much... More

This cute little mock village is packed with Maori history. It's not far from Kerikeri and right across the river from the Stone Store. Be careful to find the path down into the rest of the village and not accidentally wander into Discoverer Gardens :)

Took my class over for a visit. They loved running around looking at all the buildings. Staff friendly and helpful.

The village is a reconstruction of a Maori fishing village as would have been occupied when missionaries first came to the area. There is little to see and what there is not in particularly good condition or interesting. You don't get much for your $10 entry fee.

Took my two grandsons 8 and 9. They were so excited and asking lots of questions and assuming I must have lived in that time. It was self tour and very interesting if you can explain about the various areas and whares. We enjoyed it but the boys would have loved to go on the waka instead we just took... More

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).
