Kia Ora koutou. Cannot thank you enough for letting our whanau celebrate my sons 5th birthday with all his friends and whanau from Gisborn, Wanganui and Rotorua. It was truly amazing and i swear every single parent commented on the beautiful and unique structure of Tapu Te Ranga Marae. It was the Prefect venue for my crazy family 😊. Surrounded by Mother Nature and soooo much space for kids to run around. feeling as if I was back home!! The sun was shinning, kids had a pond to paddle in, they got to explore the world away from technology And we also ended the evening with my close family huddled around the bomb fire. Tena koutou Katoa Te whanau o Tapu Te Ranga Marae. For your hospitality and warm welcomes. Arohanui na Te Sio-Tuhaka whanau. Xx


Thank you so much for the amazing experience I had when staying at your Marae. Definitely recommend. :)


What an amazing place! So beautiful and Bruce and Halima are so welcoming and helpful. This place was the best for our group and I would highly recommend to any environmental/charity/not-for-profit group to meet, bond and learn about what amazing history and community they are building here. It's inspiring and peaceful. Lots of love to the Whanau and I can't wait until I can visit again xx


Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Tapu Te Ranga with the Show Us Ya Text crew. Beautiful spaces, lovely people and a mean as history of building community and standing strong. Thanks heaps your support! I'll be back...


E te whānau o Tapu te Ranga, Ka nui te mihi aroha ki kautau mo ou kautau manaaki i a matau a, ko te ope o nga kotiro tawhito o te kura o Turakina. Nei ra te aroha, Maua ko taku tama, ko Wiremu


Hello Bruce. I've just enjoyed the last 2 hours, wandering through your website. I am amazed.


Kia ora koutou Bruce, Halima and Whanau, thank you so much for your support of our UNICEF NZ Youth Congress 2015. Your marae is an amazing venue, our young people loved being able to stay in such a wonderful place. Thank you Halima for the lovely food, and to your whanau for showing us the marae and looking after us during our stay. Thank you to Bruce for sharing his story of the marae and his life experiences. We wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you in the future,


Kia Ora to the Stewart whanau. I had the pleasure of attending noho with my mahi Manaaki Aotearoa for our hui. I had the most amazing exprience comming away feeling re-juvenated & up lifted spiritually. Our kai was delicious & wholesome.I want to thank your whole whanau for making us feel so very welcome.I loved listening to Bruces korero around the beginning of Tapu Te Ranga & his vision then & in the future
Also I would like to thank Halima for taking the time to find my reading glasses that I left behind & sending them the very next day to my home in the Wairarapa, I really appreiciated that.
I hope I get to come back again.

Kia ora Tapu Te Ranga whānau,
A huge thank you on behalf of InsideOUT for hosting our third hui at Tapu Te Ranga Marae. Such a beautiful space for our sexuality and gender diverse rangatahi to be themselves in, learn and grow, we couldn't ask for anywhere better!
