Maori Experience...During the day?

by marcopollo1844

Greetings,

My family are planning a trip to the North Island in late September. I have two young sons, age 3 & 6. We want to expose them to the Maori culture, but it looks like all of the events take place in the evening and we are afraid that our boys may fall asleep. Are there day time Maori events?

Many thanks in advance!

Cheers!

I'm not knocking culture, but for boys ages 3 and 6 you have to take them to the downhill car racing track. Its a blast and safe for young kids

Hi

If you are planning on going to Rotorua by any chance, go to Whakarewarewa. They have geysers and mud pools etc as well as the maori village which has shows and traditional maori meals (hangi). They have daytime perfomances of a maori culture group which are during the day. If you are planning to have a hangi, I would advise you book in advance. Admission is $18 per adult, $9 per child 5 - 12yrs and under 5's are free.

Try this website www.whakarewarewa.com

Good luck with your travels

Travel Tips for Rotorua

Get there early

by Imbi

When you visit Maori Arts and Crafts Institute give yourself sufficient time to explore the whole beauty and history of the place. I arrived there around 2pm it means that I had to come back next morning to explore the whole Institute.

Have a Maori Feast!

by ATXtraveler about Tamaki Maori Village

For those of you who like to take a taste of another culture, head on down to the Maori Village just outside of Rotorua. I was actually shocked that the Maoris eat almost identically to the American Pilgrims! We had roasted chicken, carrots, potatoes, sweet potato, cranberry, and finished off by a nice bread pudding with custard.

I enjoyed it, although i can not tell you if it really was a traditional meal.

Afterward, they do present you with how it would traditionally be prepared in an underground oven.

this was so fun!!!! i can't wait for a similar thing to be built in my country!! basically everyone just puts on their helmets and get ready to go down the slopes on this kart thing which is called the luge........and just experience the excitement of rushing down the hill! after one reaches the bottom, you can enjoy the ride up the hill in an open gondola. the breeze is chilling! it was good fun and both my cousin and sister actually ended up with scratches after falling out of their luges....because the slopes were too steep to handle! crickey!

THE BURIED VILLAGE

by kiwigal_1

I have been to The Buried Village twice in my many trips to Rotorua, once when I was 13 and again when I was 26. In that time there was the welcome addition to the village excavations of a museum which explains more about the history of the area and the famous volcanic eruption of Mt Tarawera in 1886 which is the eruption responsible for burying the village of Te Wairoa.

Once you have walked through the museum and read up on all that fascinating history you can walk outside around the various excavations. I recommend you also take a walk on the Te Wairoa Falls track. It is very scenic and not too difficult to walk on.

I would say that this is personally one of my favourite attractions in Rotorua (but then I love anything to do with volcanic history!)
Speaking of which - a great website for more information on the Tarawera Eruption visit http://anheizen.com
