New Zealand Things to Do: 1,188 reviews and 1,667 photos


Whakarewarewa - In and around the city of Rotorua, next to the lake of the same name, the Earth is alive. Hot springs and geysirs attract the visitors, which are located in several nature parks. Within the city bordres is Whakarewarewa, which has, next to a historic Maori Village, mud pools, geysirs, sulpher springs and sinter terraces. A few kilometers out of town are "Hell's Gate", "Waimangu" and "Waiotapu" which are all worth a visit.
