For a $10 entrance fee, the Volunteers are super friendly. The place could use some love, but there is still so much history here. Great introduction into Maori culture and just a cool place to check out. I spend about an hour there just looking...More

I took two clients on request to the village, it's unkempt, untidy and not well managed, watch the entrance steps. Apart from that the Maori display at the entrance is interesting, weapons, history, clothing items. You are provided with a guide sheet to explain buildings...More

Promised so much, delivered so little. If I was a New Zealander I would be embarrassed. The village needs to be repaired, the native plants need some love and attention. It is unfortunate as the location and surrounding historical buildings and Pa are quite good.
