Dad, where are we going?


Get set for the annual Bike Festival

The Rotorua Bike Festival is a week of entertainment, and with over 10,000 wheels on display in 2014, this year promises to be better than ever.

With events for everyone, from the hard-core, fall-off-a-cliff downhiller to the family crowd just looking to have fun and everything in between, this is becoming a stalwart on Rotorua's annual event calendar.

With 10 days of action running from Friday February 13 through to Sunday February 22, make sure to check out the programme, come watch the events or join us for the ride...

a modern take on our most famous love song

A passionate modern version of New Zealand’s most famous love song, Pokarekare Ana, has been produced, courtesy of former Supergroove frontman turned composer, Karl Steven.

A 30 second snippet of the song has already been heard in homes across the country as the soundtrack to the 'Famously Rotorua' television commercials.

Pokarekare Ana is about the forbidden love between legendary Maori figures Hinemoa and Tutanekai, who were separated by their families and the waters of Lake Rotorua.
