Travel Tips for Rotorua

Craters of the Moon, Wairakei Tourist Park

by wkcsmt

Does the moon actually looks like this?? Be an astronaut & check it out. As far as I know, it's free!!

It's about 30 minutes walk discovering the bubbling craters, mud pools and steam vents, also some interesting plants in the hot & steamy condition.

It's a few kilometres north of Taupo at the junction of SH 1 & 5. Can't find it, get direction from Taupo Visitor Infomation Centre.

The Gardens of Rotorua

by CanadianFlower

In Rotorua there are some wonderful greenhouses full of tropical plantsm orchids and sometimes even sulphur crested cockatoos! Go to the Government Gardens and look around. A name to watch out for is the Tamaki Sacred Maori Gardens. For an interactive map of the area where the gardens is located, click here...

Don't pass up this opportunity for a wonderful experience, along with all others that Rotorua has to offer, such as the Blue Baths, on the same grounds. http://www.bluebaths.co.nz

Rotorua is one of my favourite places to stay in New Zealand. You have to allow 2 days minimum, but you can't see everything properly without setting aside at least 3 or 4 days. Have fun! There is also a pretty good brochure of Rotorua's delights and activities at http://www.rotoruanz.com/downloads/2005_Rotorua_Visitor_Guide_Map-Part2.pdf

Write to the Rotorua Tourist Centre if you want more information- info@tourism.rdc.govt.nz . Their office is located at 1167 Fenton St. in Rotorua, and there are often shuttle buses going from there to the other hot spots. Check out their web site at http://www.rotoruanz.com

Tamaki Maori Village

by blue_sky04

It was a great experience to visit this Maori Village. Organized by the Tamaki (an award winning tour organizer), the tour includes a visit to the Maori village and a great Maori dinner. I paid $75 for it.

A welcoming dance was performed by the Maori people as we arrived in the village. Important rule: NO LAUGHING, or they will make you CRY.

TeWhakareWarea Thermal Village

by ATXtraveler

One of the most unique traits about Rotorua is the thermal activity that is found all around this region. Within the region there are a couple different spots where you can enjoy this directly. Within this Thermal Village you can get a couple great views of the geyser, view some mud pools up close, and also see a maori presentation of singers.

There are also a ton of wood carving shops, as well as New Zealand Maori jewelery.
