About Rotorua

Located in the centre of the North Island of New Zealand, Rotorua is the birthplace of tourism in New Zealand and the heartland of New Zealand’s Maori culture.

Rotorua has a fascinating mixture of Maori history, tradition and culture combined with its unique geographical features. Surrounded by the unmistakable smell of bubbling sulphuric geysers and mud pools, Rotorua is the geothermal experience of a lifetime. Rotorua truly embraces the concept of hosting visitors and proudly presents a wide and varied range of experiences.

Rotorua, also known as Natures Spa of the South Pacific, is a fisherman’s paradise with 18 picturesque lakes, 15 of them fishable.

Nowhere in New Zealand is the earth more powerful – bubbling mud and spectacular geothermal geysers will leave you amazed at how unique Papatuanuku (mother earth) truly is.
