Geothermal Wonders

Spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools, steaming vents, boiling lakes and colourful sinter terraces are just about everywhere in and around Rotorua

 
Besides taking advantage of our glorious hot pools, you must make time to check out our spectacular geothermal parks – each one so different from the others – in and around the city. These incredible, surreal places will leave you in awe and provide the most amazing backdrop for your photography.
 
Be sure to make time for Kuirau Park, just a few minutes’ walk from the city centre. Meandering paths through this city park take you to see mud pools and hot pools (too hot for bathing!). Then, take a load off and soak your feet in the free foot bath.
