  • . (03/2017) Well kept secret of Rotorua which is missed by most of the tourists. Road to this destination is easy to drive on. Beautiful clear natural water spring filled with fishes and ducks. Well maintained. Amazing views. Nice track for walking after crossing the hanging wooden bridge. Peaceful location.
  • Took a little while to find the entrance of this wonderful walk and well worth spending at least an hour to leisurely walk through the tracks. Well shaded area and well maintained.
  • A simply stunning walk! I don't think I've ever seen water as still and as clear as it is here. Walking with giant Redwoods is also an incredibly experience. Free and beautiful
  • Beautiful scenic view. Easy to walk along the course. Training shoes will do well.
  • A great walk. But no public toilets.
