Rotorua – Geothermal adventure!

We went to two geothermal sites yesterday, both were pretty spectacular and very different! The first was…


Here we saw the Lady Knox Geyser, this is manually set off every day for visitors to see, it was quite impressive! The other highlight of this site was the Champagne pool, amazing colours, it felt like being on a different planet!




Te Puia was the next stop, a fantastic mixture of hot springs, vents, mud pools along with Kiwi birds on display (although I only saw the back off one through a mass of tourists) and an introduction to Maori culture. We paid the extra $10 to see a traditional Haka along with other Maori traditional songs and dances, it was well worth the money!
