Award-winning cultural attraction
The land where Highland Paradise Cook Islands Cultural Centre is located was the homeland to the paramount chief, Tinomana Ariki and the Tinomana tribe. The 600 year-old village was abandoned in the early 1800s with the introduction of Christianity.
Discover the life story of King Tinomana through a unique, entertaining and colourful cultural show and an 'umu' feast, presented by his descendants.
