Te Puia is home to the world-famous Pohutu geyser and the renowned guided tours of Te Whakarewarewa Valley, alongside bubbling mud, native bush and silica formations. It is also home to the New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute.
Alongside its legacy as a birthplace of tourism in New Zealand, the organisation is also internationally renowned for its role in ensuring the ongoing preservation of Maori art, craft, culture and identity.
Te Puia and NZMACI are inextricably linked with a distinct, and yet shared legacy. Its unique cultural and commerce model is unlike anything else in the world.
Te Puia is proud to host Tiki Āhua, with a focus on celebrating, nurturing and shining light upon talented designers, models, choreographers, musicians and dancers.
