Surrounded by lakes and featuring impressive areas of geothermal landscape, the city of Rotorua offers an otherwordly landscape and a welcoming, peaceful environment, with the culture of the native Maori people very much in the foreground.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Blue Baths. Take a break from the city and head to Huka Falls Walkway and Taupo DeBretts Spa Resort. Visit Buried Village of Te Wairoa and Government Gardens for their historical value. Step out of Rotorua to go to Taupo and see Kinloch Beach, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Rainbow Springs Nature Park, do a tasting at Volcanic Hills Winery, witness a stunning natural landmark at Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Michael's Catholic Church.

To see reviews, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Rotorua trip builder app .

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airports are Auckland International Airport and Hamilton International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in December, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
