Hot Spring Nature / Park
Family-run and full of charm, Miranda Hot Springs offers 100-percent natural mineral pools for visitors to relax the day away. Plunge into one of the three pools, all differing in temperatures ranging from 36 to 41 C (96.8 to 105.8 F). The largest pool is the size of a big swimming pool, brimming with hot thermal mineral water and accessible by aqua lift. The children's pool is kept at a lower temperature, while the adult-only sauna pool remains the warmest. In addition, there are four private spa pools and an onsite snack bar dishing up hearty classics. A visit to Miranda Hot Springs represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Thames itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Trip back in time. These pools are fantastic and well worth a visit. Generous portion of fish and chips makes a great post swim meal.
  • Always enjoy a visit. Changing sheds urgently need updating! Also no provision for changing an infant. Feel concerned if Summer opening hours have changed. Love BBQ area!
  • Apartfrom the slightly steep entrance fee ($14 per person) this is quite a nice spot. The facilities are simple but clean. The main pool is enormous and looks like a swimming pool. There is a smaller, hotter pool too. There are no natural or natural-looking pools here (except if you stay at the camp) but it's a pleasant stop on the way to or from Auckland.
  • Aucklanders... Great family destination. Affordable, relaxing, plenty for kids to do, every amenity you can think of. Spotless, well run.
  • Clean and a good place to either cook your own BBQ or buy food there. The swim is great too! Entry fee a little steep.
