Coromandel Peninsula and the Bay of Plenty Sights

Paparoa Marae

  • Local Interest–Sight

Fodor's Review

The whānau (family) of Paparoa Marae provides a marae (meeting house) experience that is down-to-earth. It's a working marae so, along with a traditional welcome and cultural performance, Māori elders explain the marae, Māori carvings, and other aspects of Māori history, culture, and protocol. You're invited to share in a hāngi (the traditional method of Māori cooking) meal. A marae visit costs around $35–$75, including the hāngi. It's about 20 minutes

out of Tauranga, just off State Highway 2 in the village of Te Puna.
