Proudly organised by the Waitomo District Council, the Great NZ Muster is an annual event unique to the King Country. A cross between a country fair and a rural extravaganza, it truly is kiwi heartland at its best.

Te Kuiti’s main street is transformed with displays and specials to capture your attention. Sheep themed signs decorate shop fronts, sidewalks are lined with fantastic products and tempting tidbits to all who pass.

The sweet smelling aroma of homemade kai and the exotic food hits your nostrils. Arts and crafts displays and rural exhibits add to the atmosphere; everywhere you look, there’s something happening.

Add to that back to back entertainment on the main stage with performers showcasing their skills. There are exciting competitions, guest MC’s, performances by talented locals, and sheep mustering skills are put on display.

Located in the heart of the activity are our beautifully restored Railway Station buildings - home to the Sir Colin's Meads Statue and the Gallagher Meads Brothers Exhibition. Experience this exhibit of memorabilia from both brothers' rugby careers, and get yourself a limited edition Sir Colin Meads t-shirt.

Once you’ve checked out Te Kuiti, “Shearing Capital of the World”, adventure into our vibrant and thriving Waitomo District – the caving adventures, glowworms, black water rafting, stunning waterfalls, hunting and fishing, the rugged coastline, walking and hiking tracks, and of course New Zealand's best Timber Trail cycleway in Pureora.

Waitomo offers an experience unlike any other! For more information about what to see, bookings and accommodation, please contact the friendly Waitomo District Council Te Kuiti i-Site, Te Kuiti or phone 07-878-8077.
