  • Close to Rotorua. Quiet. Good for exercise or walking the dog. The water is amazing. Only downfall is the lack of rubbish bins and toilet facilities.
  • . (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.
  • Breathtaking and beautiful spot. Gentle easy 20minute walk. Lots of picnic areas on the banks of the springs. Worth visiting
  • Pure natural beauty in the outdoors. Lovely stream & park next to lake Rotorua.
  • The best redwood grove in Rotorua and secret scenic spot missed by most of visitors.
