Surrounded by lakes and featuring impressive areas of geothermal landscape, the city of Rotorua offers an otherwordly landscape and a welcoming, peaceful environment, with the culture of the native Maori people very much in the foreground.
Family-friendly places like Huka Prawn Park and Huka Honey Hive will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Rotorua: Taupo (Huka Falls Walkway & Adrenaline & Extreme Tours). There's lots more to do: take in the natural beauty of Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, look for all kinds of wild species at Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park, don't miss a visit to Te Puia, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.
