Travel Tips for Rotorua

Maori Culture Shows

by Kate-Me

I really recommend taking in one of several Maori cultural shows on offer while you're in Rotorua.
The Maori people are very serious about preserving their heritage, history, culture, including dance (most famous of all is the maori Haka war type 'dance' that the NZ Rugby All-Blacks team do at the start of their matches to try and intimidate the opposition)
Here though, at the show we attended at Whakawerawera Thermal Park, is a far more gentle dance, done with the Poi's (maori version of pom-poms really). There were many children taking part. This little girl was the youngest, and took her dancing quite seriously indeed. And she was very good for one so small!

Great little pavement cafe

by allikat about Freos

Freos is a great little pavement cafe and bar, serving a variety of meals including steaks, pasta and light snacks. The cafe is licenced or you can if you prefer BYO (Bring Your Own).
We enjoyed a lazy lunchtime drink in the sun and indulged in a little people watching. A cold Pimms and a bowl of hot chips set me up a treat!

Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland

by M0B1US

South of Rotorua on the road to Taupo and famous for the Lady Knox Geyser, the only geyser in the region that can be relied on to erupt at the same time each day (10.15am) to heights of up to 21 metres.

Meaning 'Sacred Waters' in Maori, Wai-O-Tapu is known as New Zealand's most colourful and diverse geothermal sightseeing experience, with a wide range of other attractions such as Mud pools, Mineral terraces, Colourful hot and cold pools and Steaming Volcanic Lakes. All within an easy walk of each other through forested terrain.

At first the price (NZD $16.50 for Adults) seems a bit steep, but for that you get easily a couple of hours to stroll around in awe of these natural wonders complete with information on how they were formed.

After you pass the visitor centre (cafe, shop, toilets etc) you cross a seemingly ordinary stream into the park - except that on closer inspection it is actually steaming!

Major sights include (Check out the great website for a full description of each attraction!):

Well over a dozen huge Volcanic Craters.

An 'Artist´s Palette' of hot and cold pools, steaming fumaroles and boiling mud in a kaleidoscopic variety of everchanging colours.

Primrose Terraces of over a hectare of naturally tinted and remarkably formed terraces which are the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

Spectacular pools of bubbling and boiling mud.

The stunning Champagne Pool. Unique in the world, this is a huge pool of bubbling and hissing jade coloured water, with a beautiful ochre-coloured petrified edge. My absolute favourite!!!

Bridal Veil Falls. A cascade of mineral water over a terraced silica formation of changing hues from glistening white and lemon to an emerald green.

There are also many panoramic views on this sacred Maori site including alum cliffs, a frying pan flat and vistas of lakes, and mountains in the distance.

If you have time for just one thermal attraction in Rotorua - it has to be here! Chances are that you may have to drive past it anyway!

Geysers in ‘Whaka’

by vtveen

In the village of Whakarewarewa is a viewing platform for the two geysers of the thermal area.

The most impressive is Pohutu. This geyser will erupt at least every hour and spurts lots of water and steam in the air about 20 metres high. Mostly eruptions do last ten minutes or so. Enough time to take one picture (or more).

The Prince of Wales Feathers geyser is a little bit smaller and always starts spurting water and steam before Pohutu.

Sheep sheering

by grets

A sheep show would not be complete without a sheep sheering demonstration. This one is done with an electric sheerer, which is the modern and efficient way of doing it. I am amazed at how quickly they can remove a whole body coat from a sheep. If they do this demonstration every day, I wonder how many sheep they have?
