Buried Village

The Buried Village with its award-winning museum, recreated pioneer cottage, Maori whare and excavated sites is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Rotorua. The scenic nature trail, which includes a walk to the stunning Wairere Falls, and Vi’s Teahouse onsite are attractions in their own right.

The excavated village offers a first-hand insight into the chaos and mayhem that transpired on the night Mount Tarawera erupted. It is an authentic appreciation of the people of Te Wairoa, both Maori and European, on how they lived… and died.

Rotorua offers numerous adrenaline-charged rides, cultural experiences and geothermal parks but the  Buried Village of Te Wairoa is truly unique to Rotorua.

October – April: 9.00am – last entry 5.00pm
