Rotorua, NZ

From Queenstown Domestic Airport  we had a flight back to Christchurch, connecting flight for our next destination Rotorua New Zealand through Jetstar Airline, low cost airline in Australia and New Zealand owned by Qantas Group.

Rotorua is a city on the southern shores of the lake of the same name, in the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island of New Zealand.

Rotorua is a major destination for both domestic and international tourists. The city is known for its geothermal activityand hot mud pools. This thermal activity is sourced to the Rotorua caldera, on which the city lies.

Rotorua is one place where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident. This city, on the Volcanic Plateau, has one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity. Skyrocketing geysers, hot springs and boiling mud pools all tell you that this place sits squarely on the Pacific Rim of Fire.

On our arrival at Rotorua we were fetch by our tour/driver guide "Sir John" and went straight to Supreme Chinese Restaurant for our lunch.

The northern end of Rotorua has a public park that is definitely alive and well. Walking tracks lead to numerous areas of vigorous geothermal activity. Provided a stay on the cool side of the safety fences. Take a walk and discover the steaming, hissing and bubbling geothermal activity in this informal public park located right next to Rotorua's city centre.
Great for soaking your feet in. Not for bathing in. Lovely surroundings especially on a very cold day, all the steam swirls around you. Take a towel to sit on as the wooden seats do get very wet. Two covered foot pools and one uncovered pool. 

On this park lies a beautiful lake,

Rotorua, New Zealand

we were able to visit rotorua after our trip to wellington enroute to auckland. we stayed overnight there. the place is clean and tourist friendly. we were only able to visit the wai-o-tapu and the skyline because of time constraints. a visit to the lake was one of the highlights of our stay there. did you notice that the police station there has a translation of it in pilipino? ha ha ha
