A Day at the Domain is a fun and affordable family day out in the beautiful, historic Te Aroha Hot Springs Domain. With free entry and entertainment throughout the day, local crafters and artisans, coffee, ice cream and food trucks, there is something to delight young and old and everyone in between!


2024 - What another awesome event!

Entertainment for all!  We opened in our traditional way at 10am, as we have done for the last 40 odd years, with the Pipe Band.  This year the First Credit Union sponsored Free Children's area included a bouncy castle maze, facepainting and other activities for the little ones, all free of charge!  Entertainment all day was provided by Greg Marshall.  The Wai Taiko Drummers were amazing!  The children's Teddy Bears Picnic was well attended and included Interactive Story Time with costumed Super Hero's Spiderman, Batman and Elsa from Enchanted Entertainment!  Lots of you also had a meet and greet with the characters afterwards. For the bigger kids we had the Extreme Air Bungee, Axe Throwing plus Archery with Wulflings, and the popular Irish Dancers were here delight the crowds and get the toes tapping.  The Te Aroha Croquet Club held demonstrations and free 'have a go' sessions and the Te Aroha District Museum was free entry all day!

Matamata Piako Libraries (Te Aroha) spent time in the Free Childrens area with activities and story time for the children.  


The Pavilion Tea Rooms, run as a fundraiser by the ladies of St Marks Church, was a wonderful place for a very affordable simple lunch option. 

Our own committee run, fund raising, sausage sizzle/bacon butty/candy floss and popcorn did a roaring trade!  We were run off our feet!  

A massive thanks to our sponsors and many volunteers on the day!  We could not have done this without you!

We've wrapped up for another year.  Follow our Facebook page for all of the latest news and updates of our 2025 event.
