Rotorua boasts a strong relationship between Maori and European cultures. With one third of New Zealand’s population Maori, Rotorua is a strong hold of Maori culture, arts and crafts. For the Maori people, it is considered an honour to share their cultural treasures with visitors, whether it be through one of the many Maori performances where stories are relayed through beautiful song and dance, taking in a traditional hangi feast, where food is cooked below the ground in an earthen oven, or visiting a Maori village to view a wide range of traditionally crafted arts.

Rotorua has it’s own natural theme-park unlike any other around the world. From fun activities for the family, soaking in the tranquility of 11 exquisite Lakes, or enjoying the numerous water activities including fishing for world renowned rainbow trout in crystal clear rivers.
