About Buried Village Rotorua

Discovered in 1931 by Reg and Vi Smith, Buried Village Rotorua has since become the family's passion project, dedicated to keeping the history of Te Wairoa alive for posteriority. The third generation of Smiths is currently carrying on this tradition maintaining a museum that combines extensive archaeological research with a personalised approach. The pensive mood can be further explored thanks to hiking trails available in the vicinity of the site, featuring scenic views and waterfalls.
