Location & Directions

The Manu Tīoriori Visitor Centre is open from 9:00am to 4:00pm daily.  We are open every day except Christmas Day, 25 December.

Our address is 99 Tari Road, Pukeatua  

A friendly warning, if you only enter Maungatautari into your GPS or Google Maps system, it will take you to the wrong side of the mountain… so help Google to be your friend and type in 99 Tari Road, Pukeatua (this is on the southern side of the mountain).


We highly recommend booking a guided tour to get the most of your trip.  
In order to retain what makes us so special, we limit the number of visitors to 300 per day, and we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
