Wake up bright and early to meet Te Puia’s resident Kiwi at 7.30am for their monthly health check. A once in a lifetime opportunity!

See first-hand how our keepers take care of these precious birds and learn about the plight of their whanau (family) out in the wild.

After the health check you will join a guided tour to explore the geothermal wonderland that is Te Puia. The Tour will depart at 9am.

At 10.15am you can put your feet up and take a trip back in time to experience a cultural performance like no other.

Enjoy a delicious traditional hangi for lunch at our dining area Whakaruruhau.
The end of your meal marks the end of the day’s adventures. Feel free to wonder around at your own leisure.

This auction is for 2 adults & 2 children

Te Puia spans 70 hectares within the historic Te Whakarewarewa Valley. We are home to the world famous Pohutu geyser, to mud pools, hot springs, to silica formations to the Kiwi bird and the national schools of wood carving, weaving, stone and bone carving. We have shared these treasures with manuhiri (visitors) for 170 years and proudly continue that legacy today.

Participants will need to know how to stay quiet and whisper :-)
A photo opportunity next to the keeper holding the Kiwi is very likely to arise. Photos will be taken by a Te Puia staff member and emailed to the auction winner.
