Super interesting

Well explained signage and knowledgeable, friendly staff. Unfortunately we didn't have time to make it to the waterfall but the walk by the spring was lovely.

Buried Village Rotorua

The Buried Village has had an upgrade since our last visit 13 years ago. The site is beautiful, lots of land and a very pretty stream. The museum is extremely well designed and very informative. The staff were helpful and the cafe served good snacks.We could have spent longer than 1 and a half hours there.
