Central Rotorua Activities
Rotorua is host to almost two million visitors per year and is known for its geothermal activity, bubbling mud pools, geysers and thermal springs. It is also the ancestral home of the Arawa tribe, and associated Maori cultural activities which are available to the visiting public.
Numerous lake walks, with durations from half an hour to a full day are within a 30 minute drive, but by travelling a little further there are some wonderful full day river and bush walks. All offer exceptional scenery amongst native bush, few people, and are well marked.
Other attractions include the world famous Agrodome, Hangi (Maori feast), trout springs, bungi jumps, horse treks, sky diving, river rafting and a luge. In fact, Rotorua has everything one would expect to find in New Zealand, with the exception of snow.
Personally escorted tours for sightseeing, shopping and bushwalking can be arranged. Further information on Rotorua is available on the official website www.rotoruanz.co.nz
