Discover the stories of Māori rock art at our tribal Rock Art Centre. See the most significant collection of ancient Māori rock art in New Zealand. Share tribal stories and traditions with our local Māori guides. Enjoy our incredible interactive exhibition: experience the terrifying attack of Pouākai, the world’s largest eagle which roamed the skies more than 500 years ago; shelter in the ‘Cave of the Taniwha’ where the rock art is created before your eyes then takes on a life of its own!
Deepen your knowledge of Maori rock art on our rock art site tours as our guides share the stories of our ancestors on the same trails that they once traveled. Journey with us to these cherished places and let the past come to life at a group of treasured rock art sites. Follow in the footsteps of our ancestors; learn how they lived and why we treasure their legacy today.
Te Ana is a non-profit organisation - all funds from our Centre and tours are used for the Māori rock art and the revitalisation of the aspect of our tribal culture. By joining us at Te Ana you are helping to protect this our precious tribal legacy for the generations to come.
