Known as the 'Shearing Capital of the World', Te Kūiti's landmark - a giant statue of a shearer at the southern end of the main street proudly verifies this claim. The town hosts The New Zealand Shearing Championships and Great New Zealand Muster in March/April. A highlight of the Muster event is the 'Running of the Sheep' when approximately 2000 sheep run the length of the main street.
Te Kūiti is surrounded by beautiful scenery and the Brook Park Reserve is located a short walk from the holiday park. Te Kūiti Pā and the recently restored Te Tokanganui-a-Noho wharenui (meeting house) can be visited by arrangement. Visit the Sir Colin Meads Statue and the Gallagher Meads Brothers Exhibition situated at our beautifully restored Railway Station buildings in the town centre.
Only a short drive from the world famous Waitomo Caves where you can explore the native bush walks, farm experiences and great cafes above ground before heading below the surface to experience the awe-inspiring limestone formations and magical boat rides under thousands of twinkling glowworms. For the more adventurous at heart, try abseiling, black water rafting, zip lining and climbing through the cave systems on one of the many adventure tours.
Travel further afield to Pureora Forest and the iconic Timber Trail for an awesome riding experience over thrilling suspension bridges, to ancient forests with towering trees and unique wildlife. To the south, you will find Piopio village - famous for its friendly atmosphere and warm Kiwi hospitality. Eat at the Night Owl or the Fat Pigeon Cafe, or try locally made berry ice cream at the Piopio orchard. Explore scenic drives and day walks and take an unexpected journey to Hairy Feet Waitomo.
