The founding of the Tauhara Centre
In 1938, the Founders established a charitable trust in order to create a place for people to come together for community, learning, inspiration and personal growth, but it was not until the 1970s that the present site was developed, with the Centre buildings opening in 1977. Read more about our vision...
