I was rather taken with this little marae. It's one I came upon quite unexpectedly as I whizzed through Taupo. I spotted the road sign and reversed back - right into heartland suburbia! Kuiwai Marae is on a hill, wedged between domestic properties, overlooking Lake Taupo. There's a big tree - a totara I think - growing in front; and the wharenui is called Kurapoto.
