Te Kuiti is a small town in the north of the King Country region of the North Island.

Te Kuiti is approximately 80 km south of Hamilton and 19 km south-east of Waitomo.

The "Shearing Capital of the World" contains the world's largest shearer, seven metres high. On 1 April 2006 the largest sheep show in the world took place here, with more than 2000 sheep.

Limestone deposits and water have created the Waitomo Caves, northwest of the town, one of New Zealand's most-visited tourist locations. 

The town itself is located in a valley with many rich limestone deposits. The Manga-o-Kewa Stream runs through the valley and is a tributary of the Waipā River. Te Kūiti's hinterland consist mainly of farmland and limestone quarries.
