Head Office Rotorua

Ngāti Whakaue is the local Māori iwi (tribe) on which Scion’s Rotorua campus sits. The relationship with the local iwi was established in principle during the early forestry trials on Te Papa Tipu in 1898.  In 2008, the land relationship between Scion and all local iwi and and hapū (sub tribes) was formalised through covenant.

Te Papa Tipu Innovation Park is set against the magnificent backdrop of Whakarewarewa Forest (also known as The Redwoods). The 114 hectares of park-like grounds contain our main campus, laboratories and research nursery plus other businesses.
