Owner description: Te Puia spans 70 hectares within the historic Te Whakarewarewa Valley, on the edge of town. We are home to the world famous Pohutu geyser, to mud pools, hot springs, to silica formations to the Kiwi bird and the national schools of wood carving, weaving, stone and bone carving. We have shared these treasures with manuhiri (visitors) for 170 years and proudly continue that legacy today.

“Not bad”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I thought it was going to be a lot bigger , but a short walk to the Gyser, a lovely Kiwi house, where you do actually get to see a kiwi....and you can go and see the craftmanship.

“Expensive but interesting.”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Tickets include a guided tour, the Carving School, Weaving School and the Kiwi House and they are all well worth seeing. We were a little disappointed in our visit but only due to the weather conditions of the day - pouring rain!
