Lake Taupo Boat Ride to Maori Rock Carvings


On display for all to see since 1980 (after four years of carving), the huge Maori Rock Carving on Lake Taupo is one of New Zealand's most popular tourist sights. Measuring almost 46 feet tall, the rock carving is located in Mine Bay, an alcove on Lake Taupo. For most people, the easiest way to see the carving is on a 1 1/2 to 2 hour narrated boat tour that cruises around the lake.

What country have you recently learned more about the local culture and customs?

Our first few days in New Zealand has given us a little more insight into the Maori culture and traditions. Our Ernest Kemp boat ride on Lake Taupo brought us to this Maori rock carving which took four years to create.

We still have more NZ travel planned, so make sure you are following us to see what we learn as we explore this amazing country.

Do you try to learn about the local culture and customs when you travel?
