About the Experience
Just below the surface lay a buried village - discover it for yourself in Rotorua! Te Wairoa was established by the Christian missionary in 1848 as a model village, but survived for fewer than 40 years before it, and the nearby Pink and White Terraces were obliterated by the eruption of Mt Tarawera. In 1931 Reg and Vi Smith, with their sons, travelled to a derelict cottage on overgrown land, where they discovered more than they expected. More than 80 years on and a fourth generation of Smiths continue the guardianship of the Buried Village. After much hard work, vision and dedication, the Smiths have developed the site into an award-winning heritage attraction visited by thousands of people from all over the world. With today's deal you can access the Museum of Te Wairoa - home to a valuable collection of Victoriana and other specific relics of the Tarawera eruption, the archaeological site where you can discover the remains, excavated evidence and recreated scenes, the surrounding waterfalls, trails and kids activity areas, as well as joining in on guide talks (on request during winter months).
