Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Bay of Plenty Region / Rotorua District / Rotorua / Te Puia
Take a guided tour of the thermal geysers at Te Puia, Rotorua's undisputed star attraction. A short ride south of the city center, this thermal reserve features over 500 hot springs. The most famous of the many geysers is the aptly named Big Splash, erupting at least two dozen times a day and spouting water as high as 30 m (98 ft) into the air. Other highlights include regular cultural performances and popular hangi feasts, allowing visitors to experience the local cuisine. Don't miss the carving and weaving schools, where you can learn about the traditional methods of Maori artisans. Plan my day in Rotorua using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Te Puia Reviews
Make sure that you do the guided tour. The guides are from mauri decent and are extremely knowledgeable! more »
先是入場等待遊園車接駁，到達定點介紹了等等晚餐要享用的Hangi大餐製作方式（使用地熱料理），接著被帶到類似集會所的地方，開啟了一場震撼的歌舞演出，招牌的戰士伸舌及婦女們的甩球舞，看得兩歲小童也目瞪口呆，最後還邀請台下觀眾上台同樂，結束後前往餐廳享用Hangi大餐，再搭遊園車前往夜間地熱處拍照，結束美麗的夜晚。 more »First, i'll be waiting for the pick-up, first to the Hangi dinner to be enjoyed for dinner, and then to be taken to the place where it resembled a conference, and then to a rocking dance performance, the signature of the players and the girls' kick-off dances, and the children were stunned, Finally, i'd invite you to the stage and hang out, then go to the restaurant for a Hangi dinner, then take a flight to the night to take pictures and enjoy the beautiful night.
My family enjoyed our day at Te Puia very much! We learnt a great deal from the guided tour (she was lovely and informative). It was easy to navigate our way around the park and we LOVED the concert of traditional dance and song! Their customer service is also FANTASTIC! We had accidentally left our camera behind, but they very kindly posted it back home to us in AUSTRALIA! How wonderful is that!!! We were so appreciative, as our family holiday photos were all on that camera! Thank you for a great experience!
It is very interesting to learn something about the Maori culture. The Park is very nice and you have a good combination of culture, nature and craftsmanship there. I would recommend taking a tour through the village to get some additional information and also some insights to the Maori behavior.
