Nestled amid rolling hills and native forest, the geothermal wonderland of Rotorua boasts spa, adventure, outdoor and cultural activities galore.

New Zealand’s top tourist destination has a thriving hospitality scene and is packed with sparkling lakes, scenic walking tracks and mountain bike trails so good they’re known around the world. Stunning parks and gardens have earned it the title of NZ’s most beautiful city six times in 11 years and world-first adrenalin activities such as the Shweeb and OGO make it an adventure destination to rival the best.

The country’s Maori cultural heartland is infused with indigenous legends, music, food and art, and its fascinating history is told through interactive displays at Rotorua Museum and a wide range of indigenous culture attractions and geothermal parks.

Rotorua’s volcanic activity has been harnessed to form leading mineral pool and spa treatment centres such as Wai Ora Spa and the world renowned Polynesian Spa Resort. A short drive from the city is Rainbow Springs Kiwi Wildlife Park, a world-class attraction with a conservation programme aimed at saving the iconic kiwi from extinction.

This compact little city is easy to navigate on foot, by tour bus or in an independent vehicle. It’s an unforgettable destination you’ll want to visit again and again.
