A wharenui ( literally "big house") is a communal house of the Māori people of New Zealand, generally situated as the focal point of a marae. Wharenui are usually called meeting houses in New Zealand English, or simply called whare (a more generic term simply referring to a house or building). Also called a whare rūnanga ("meeting house") or whare whakairo (literally "carved house"), the present style of wharenui originated in the early to middle nineteenth century.

The Maori built meeting houses before the period of contact with Europeans. The early structures appear to have been used as the homes of chiefs, though they were also used for accommodating guests. They did not exist in every community.

The carved Meeting House (Te Whare Runanga) symbolises the Maori involvement in the signing of the Treaty. It is a national Marae and carvings in the Meeting House depict ancestors from many Maori tribes in New Zealand. A visitor centre, gift shop and 2 cafes are situated on the grounds.
