We weren't really sure what to expect when we visited, but probably something sanitised and dressed prettily for tourists. Instead we found a real Maori experience. A local showed us the secrets of the hangi, we ate a hangi pie for lunch and needed nothing else for the rest of the day!
I bought some thermal mud moisturiser which is very effective. We also threw coins into the river for the children to dive for, and they were excellent at retrieving them.
