New Zealand | Rotorua | Te Puia | Matariki | Exploring | Tours of New Zealand | Pohutu Geyser
While visiting New Zealand, we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Te Puia in Rotorua. It was
there that we saw the Matariki Cultural Performance which included Hangi and Maori dance. We
thoroughly enjoy the Polynesian shows and the music. While in the cultural village park, we also
saw the geyser and other thermal features as well as some native village demonstrations.
Although the main attraction was the performance, our entire visit was quite enjoyable!

Do you enjoy seeing cultural performances when visiting a distant land?
During our cruise around the North and South Islands of New Zealand in 2017, we joined
Zealandier Tours for a day of exploring from the Port of Rotorua. After touring some of the
geothermal sites in the area, we enjoyed our stop at Te Puia. The traditional cultural performance
included storytelling through song, dance and games. We sometimes feel that performances like
this are too touristy, but we really enjoyed our day!
