Steeped in cultural history, Rotorua is the home of ‘Maoridom’ where you can experience all aspects of this amazing culture. From cultural performances to pulling a traditional hangi straight out of the steaming ground, there is something to suit everyone.

A visit to the hot pools is a must when in Rotorua. Just minutes’ walk from the city centre are the Kuirau Park foot pools. Soak your feet as steam from the thermal vents swirl around you. A short drive south from Rotorua is Kerosene Creek that flows through natural bush with a 2-metre waterfall to a pool of hot water.

Also situated south of Rotorua, a short 25 minute drive, is Waikite Valley Thermal Pools which have private pools, sit ‘n’ soak, splash pool and toddlers’ beach area. Hours are 10am-9pm 364 days a year. This pure spring water – the largest single source of 100% pure boiling water in New Zealand – cascades into 10 different pools at temperatures of 35-40°C. Added bonuses are the heated changing facilities with high pressure hot showers, eco-trail to the 98°C Te Manaroa Spring, licensed café, and an adjoining camp ground.

Let’s not forget that Rotorua is also a fantastic area for the adventure seeker with rafting, kayaking, glow worm tours, jet boating and even tree walk options!
