Ohinemutu Maori Village


Maori Culture Historical and Heritage Points of Interest Culture & History Tours

Just a few minutes' walk from central Rotorua on the lakeshore, the Maori village of Ohinemutu gives visitors the chance to glimpse the Maori way of life.

Members of the Ngāti Whakaue tribe live in the village, but visitors are welcome to wander through and see how the hot water vents are used for cooking, and the outdoor bathing sheds.

Visitors can also see the intricate carvings on the Marae, which is the community's meeting house and St Faith's church which, although in the Tudor style on the outside, has a strong Maori influence on the inside including carvings and a stained glass window with a picture of Jesus wearing a Maori cloak.

The historic St Faith's Church, which was completed in 1914 is also located here. Visitors are welcome to visit the church, which is open from 8.00am. The entry to the church is free, but donations are welcome.
