Rotorua Travel guide
For over 150,000 years, Rotorua has been rumbling with subterranean energy with powerful volcanic explosions creating the region. The powerful smell of hydrogen sulphide and the spectacular geothermal wonders are continual reminders of one of the world's most active volcanic zones.
Bubbling, boiling mud pools, beautiful coloured lakes, sulphur cliffs and magnificent spouting geysers are readily accessible to visitors at Waiotapu, Waimangu and Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserves. A visit to the massive crater of Mt Tarawera and the nearby excavated Maori village are also fascinating excursions.
Generations of visitors have enjoyed the healing, soothing waters in the thermal pools. The Polynesian Spa featuring thermal waters is a popular bathing spot and many hotels also have their own pools. The Grand Tudor style Bathhouse near Lake Rotorua had its heyday early this century and now houses the local museum and art gallery. It is situated in the pretty Government Gardens.
The Maori people have long been settled in Rotorua and is one of the best places in New Zealand to see aspects of their culture. View wood carvers and flax weavers at work at the Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, traditional buildings, maraes and regular concerts and hangis (traditionally cooked Maori feast).
Around Rotorua, the upheavals of old have left craters transformed into shimmering lakes surrounded by native bush, large ferns and farmland. These lakes provide an abundance of trout for keen fishermen, walking tracks in the surrounding bush and the opportunity for many water sports.
Farm animals and New Zealand wildlife can be seen at close quarters at Rainbow Springs and Paradise Valley, and don't miss the performing sheep show at the Agrodome.
