Learn Te Reo Māori

Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei!
Pursue that which is precious and do not be deferred by anything less than a lofty mountain!

The original palings that stand guard at the entrance to the Government gardens were painted by Tene Waitere about a hundred years ago. They have since between restored to their former glory about 1990.

Rotorua Library has some excellent resources to help you learn te reo Māori and many of them are available to borrow from the library. These include picture books for children, dictionaries and language guides as well as books about te reo Māori.

We also provide access to apps and websites where you can log in with your library card as well as other useful links to help you on your journey.
