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!
