Sulphur City

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.
On the 28th (Fri), take in the natural beauty of Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, then take a memorable tour with Tours, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Huka Falls Walkway. Here are some ideas for day two: take a peaceful walk through Redwoods, Whakarewarewa Forest, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, then whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and finally don't miss a visit to Amokura Glass.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Rotorua fast, fun, and easy.

Traveling by car from Waihi Beach to Rotorua takes 2 hours. In February, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 19°C. On the 1st (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive back home.
