  • Just 10 minutes walk from downtown Rotorua is the Māori village of Ohinemutu. This place is home to the Ngāti Whakaue tribe, who gifted the land on which the city of Rotorua was built. Ngati Whakaue is a sub-tribe of the Te Arawa waka (canoe) which journeyed from the Pacific homeland of Hawaiiki to New Zealand around 1350AD. The location was chosen for its lakeside setting and abundant geothermal energy, used for cooking, bathing and heating.

    Visitors are welcome to walk around the living village. Remember to keep to the paths at all times.
    Please note that tour groups are only permitted to walk through the village by prior arrangement. Please contact Kia Ora Guided Walks should you wish to arrange this.
