New Zealand


Rotorua

The tourism capital of New Zealand and spiritual home of New Zealand’s Maori people is an easy 3 hour drive south of Auckland and 6 hours from Wellington. Rotorua is best known for its giant geysers, boiling mud pools, steaming cliffs, volcanoes and characteristic sulphur smell which is evident from the moment you arrive. Stirring performances of action songs and dance, followed by food cooked in a traditional hangi can be experienced. And, from the bush lined shores of its 11 secluded lakes, anglers can enjoy New Zealand's best trout fishing.
