Te Puia

Never the same display of energy, always changing, Te Puia is sheer raw energy. Te Puia, is home to the largest active geyser in the Southern Hemisphere, Pōhutu Geyser, as well as the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute. The institute trains the next generation of artists from around the country. This is one of the only places in Rotorua where you can witness master carvers bringing their work to life.

Kiwis, the elusive bird foraging in the night can be very difficult to locate and view. The interactive enclosure with its darkened enclosures, video action and attractive bush setting is a polished, professional visitor experience. If you are an overseas visitor who really wants to see the elusive kiwi or a local who’s never seen a Kiwi, Te Puia provides the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Now you can get a really close look at these endangered birds and find out how the sanctuary is contributing to the bird’s well being.
