Ohinemutu

Ohinemutu information

Ohinemutu is a ramshackle lakeside Maori village (access via Kiharoa, Haukotuku or Korokai Sts off Lake St, north of Rotorua Hospital) that traces the fusing of European and Maori cultures. Highlights include the sacred 1905 Tama-te-kapua Meeting House (not open to visitors), plenty of steaming volcanic vents, and the historic timber St Faith’s Anglican Church , which features intricate Maori carvings, tukutuku (woven panels) and a stained-glass window of Christ wearing a Maori cloak as he walks on the waters of Lake Rotorua.

Be respectful if you're visiting the village: this is private land, and locals don't appreciate loud, nosy tourists wandering around taking photos.
