Buried Village of Te Wairoa

Category: Attraction

tourism business offices in Rotorua bay of plenty New Zealand

Established by a Missionary in 1850, the village was home to both Maori and European. Over time is became the birthplace of NZ tourism, as the gateway to the world famous Pink and White Terraces. On June the 10th 1886, Mount Tarawera erupted violently, and Te Wairoa was buried under metres of hot sticky volcanic mud. Over 150 lives were lost, the homeless moved away, and the village lay deserted. The destruction of the Pink and White Terraces meant that tourism in the area was over. The land was purchased by the Smith family where the Buried Village was discovered. The Buried Village is a historic site with an informative museum expanding on information from the history to the present. This is a lovely walk around the premise for reading letters exchanged between England and NZ after the eruption. Down the back there is a lovely walk to a magnificent waterfall. The track is steep, but short and well worth it. The cafe is styled on times gone by, giving that theme of what it was like in those days. The food is beautiful, and it's nice to try the Devonshire tea. There is also a small playground to keep the little kids entertained.

The Soul Feast stand is my kids' favourite; freshly cooked Rewena Bread (Maori Bead) nice and hot, cut it open with plenty of butter and jam!
