Te Aroha Things to Do

  • Te Aroha Mineral Spas - Spa use natural...

    Te Aroha Mineral Spas - Spa use natural soda water. They have raised their price from 15 to 17 for 30 minutes. There is a bottom for the bubble spa. For the older one you need to come out the spa to press the bottom. So if you are going there, ask for one that you don't have to go outside. I suggest backpacker to come to this place for a shower if...

  • Soda Water Drinking Fountain

    I was told by a nice lady who walks her dog in the Te Aroha Hot Spring Domain that this fountain is a soda water fountain. I was told that you need to drink plenty of water before going to the spa so I drunk a lot. Just be careful if you have a sensitive stomach.Click here for more info on Te Aroha

  • Soda Water Geyser - the only one in the...

    This is the only soda water geyser in the world. The Geyser erupt around every 30-40 minutes. I waited for thirty minutes and there is a seat there so I was having dinner there. I was told by a nice lady, walking with her dog, that the geyser is kind of blocked by the material and there are planned to fix it. It used to go up for around 2 meters...

  • Walk Te Arohas Heritage Trail

    Te Aroha isn't a large township, but seems packed full of local history. The Te Aroha Heritage Trail is a walk around the town that takes in these local landmarks, such as the towns Memorial Clock, the colourful Coulter Bridge, the Domain and some of Te Arohas oldest buildings. If you call into the main Information centre you can pick up a leaflet...

  • Quilt Museum

    Housed in one of Te Arohas many historic buildings, the Quilt Museum is free to look around. On display are many quilts and you can buy fabric, patterns and quilting books if you are inspired to give it a try. I have to say that quilting has always been beyond me, but I do enjoy looking at the work of others. Some of the quilts on display here are...

  • St Marks Church and a remarkable pipe...

    Saint Marks church is a pretty church with mount Te Aroha as a backdrop. It was built in the 1920s as a Memorial Peace Church, and is well worth a visit in its own right if you enjoy visiting churches (as I do).However, it happens to house the oldest pipe organ in the Southern Hemisphere. Back in the early 1700s, on the other side of the world...

  • Ironique Cafe & Bar

    Ironique is a great little cafe with a bit of a difference. The cafe has been decorated with an iron theme - the bar is made with corrogated and wrought iron, the light fittings and glass racks are wrought iron, the door handles are each one half of a pair of garden shears (the blade bolted to the door with the handle for you to grab) and in the...

  • Unique and Too Good to Pass.

Te Aroha Favorites

  • Visitor Centre and Information Point

    Te Arohas Information Centre was built as the ticketing and information office for the Domain - it has been an information Centre of sorts for more or less the whole time it has stood. A pretty little building typical of New Zealand, there is a small museum inside with displays about the local areas history as well as the usual information desk and...

  • Coming in to town, cross the Bridge.

    As you come in to town from the West or South, you get to cross this lovely old bridge. OK it isn't the Golden Gate, but it is nicely painted and rather quaint for small town New Zealand.I particularly like seeing it as the sun goes low in the sky and makes the lovely colour glow a bit. Looks kinda cool with Mt TeAroha in the background.At this...
