  • Relaxing track to walk morning or evening. Because of the thermal activity it can feel hotter then normal but with a slight lake breeze it can be perfect. Beautiful surroundings capturing views of bird life, small mud pools and other thermal activity.
  • Sulphur point is a very beautiful spot to observe Rotorua from including the lakefront and its attractions such as jet boat riding, helicopter tours around various volcanoes and a flight around Rotorua city itself. Plus you have the lakeland queen stationed there where you can go for a crusie and have lunch of dinner which ever suits you lol. Ypu can also see to the far side of the lake on a good day. A nice walk connects all this which follows the lake front and sulphur point to the redwoods and more. I.e MTB tracks, walking tracks and horse riding trails.
  • Very tranquil area, peaceful, beautiful water, highly recommended for a free activity
  • . (03/2017) Nicely located point to view small hot pools filled with boiling sulphur water. Beautiful views of the lake. Well maintained walking track with historical information made available along the way. One of the highlights of our Rotorua visit.
  • Love this Place . Breath taking views.
