Head Office Rotorua

Ngāti Whakaue is the local 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.

The three-storey wood framed building 'Te Whare Nui o Tuteata' is Scion’s front door for business visitors and the public. All are invited to experience the building’s unique structural design, discover innovative technologies and science achievements in the interactive exhibition area and enjoy refreshments from Eastwood café.
