Ruatoria is a town located in the East Coast region of New Zealand’s North Island. It is located 130 kilometres north of Gisborne, 30 kilometres southwest of East Cape.

Ruatoria is steeped in Maori tradition and is an interesting stop for visitors to Eastland. The town is home territory for the Ngati Porou tribe and it’s also the spiritual base for Maori Rastafarians who combine their Rasta teaching with tribal philosophies.

If you enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, tramping and all things outdoors then this is the ideal place for you.
