Information

Our heritage

Te Puia is located in the beautiful Te Whakarewarewa thermal valley. See silica terraces, bubbling mud pools and unique geothermal vegetation. View the world famous Pohutu Geyser erupting from the ground up to 30 meter’s high – an awesome display of mother nature’s power. Ten to twenty times a day it bursts into life; a tourist attraction since the early 1900’s.

Great experience and I'd suggest to use the guided tours starting every hour on the hour. A maori guide explained us interesting things on geothermal phenomenon and Maori culture. Beside the thermal park you can see an art and crafts center.

Spectacular geysers! The park itself is not really big but some nice walks. Go see the Kiwi and if interested, the Maori Culture show.

A pity that these nature beauties have to be watched from behind fences. Unfortunately, we missed the Maori cultural show - might have been nice.

Conveniently located with awesome geysers, thermal vents, along with cultural activities. Doing the free guided tour is a must! Slightly touristy and over priced, but overall a great stop to see thermal activity.

We visited Te Puia in the morning, it was more expensive than the other geothermal areas we visited and not as beautiful as the others.

For $50, you can get entry to the Te Puia for the whole day. There are really nice geysers and you get great information about Maori Culture.

We really enjoyed the performance (song and dance), the geyser was awe-inspiring and the kiwi bird adorable. The plaques were informative, the food on offer could have been healthier.
