Home Go Travel Guide Te Puia Maori Show & Geothermal Park in Rotorua

Te Puia Maori Show & Geothermal Park in Rotorua

Day 295: Two epic experiences in one! Te Puia is not only somewhere to get a Maori experience in Rotorua, it also has the Te Puia Geothermal Park and geyser park in Rotorua!

Nowhere sums up Rotorua quite like Te Puia! The attraction easily accessed from the city encapsulated two of the most famous things Rotorua is known for: geothermal activity and the Maori culture. It’s also home to the largest active geyser in the Southern Hemisphere, the Pohutu Geyser. Let’s go check it out!

Te Puia is an easy 3-5 minute drive from Rotorua city centre, giving us the opportunity to arrive early morning for the quietest part of the day. After we get our day passes, (and tickets to the Maori cultural show later), we are met with a huge map of areas to explore in the valley, from multiple geothermal features to a small traditional Maori village. We head straight for the main feature of the geothermal park, the Pohutu Geyser.
