Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Bay of Plenty Region / Rotorua District / Rotorua / Te Puia
Take a guided tour of the thermal geysers at Te Puia, Rotorua's undisputed star attraction. A short ride south of the city center, this thermal reserve features over 500 hot springs. The most famous of the many geysers is the aptly named Big Splash, erupting at least two dozen times a day and spouting water as high as 30 m (98 ft) into the air. Other highlights include regular cultural performances and popular hangi feasts, allowing visitors to experience the local cuisine. Don't miss the carving and weaving schools, where you can learn about the traditional methods of Maori artisans. Plan my day in Rotorua using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Wasn't sure what to expect. What we found was a great few hours of walking through nature. You could walk shorter paths or go all in and take the long walks around. Honestly, just do it. Wear comfortable shoes and take your camera and relax.
