Rotorua New Zealand

Rotorua is world famous for its geothermal activity in the form of bubbling mud pools, geysers, steaming vents, health spas, and its focus on Maori culture and history.

All the services you would expect in a major town are available here, but be sure to make the most of the unique natural features. Maori concerts, hangi (feast), and cultural tours are popular activities.

Visit the Museum located in the Tudor-style Bath House (New Zealand's most photographed building), and delve into the history of the area and its progress since the arrival of man. Learn about nearby Mt Tarawera that erupted in 1886, splitting apart the mountain, burying villages and destroying the spectacular Pink and White Terraces, one of the features that first brought tourists to this area.

There are many locations for viewing thermal activity, each offering a slightly different combination of features and facilities.

The surrounding district is abundant in natural features that incorporate many lakes and extensive areas of native bush. Be sure to explore beyond the town and we highly recommend the drive along the Lake Tarawera Road to take in some splendid scenery. Along this route enjoy swimming in the warmer months and picnicking at the Blue Lake, whenever the weather is fine, make for a great way to relax during your touring holiday.

White Island

Situated in the Bay of Plenty 48kms off shore north of Whakatane White Island is New Zealandís biggest and most active volcano, although more that two thirds of its mass lies below the waterline, consisting of three distinct cones, two of which are extinct.

The Island became a private scenic reserve in 1953 almost 40 years after a crater collapse ended nearly three decades of sulphur mining on the island with the loss of twelve lives.
Relics from this venture, now seriously corroded by the acidic environment, are points of interest on tours that can be experienced by sea or air. Flights are available from Rotorua.
