A remote location on the river Waikato, without the crowds at other Rotorua sites. An incredible geothermal landscape.

We have visited this volcanic valley, we have enjoyed even if we found the visit quite expensive We did not know that we would need to pay to visit 'natural gift of nature'.

This is a review of the overnight parking for self-contained campervans if a ticket for the thermal area is purchased. As an overnight camping spot It doesn't get better than this. The views across the lake to the terraces were stunning. At times the water is warm enough and not too hot for bathing. We were the only van camped overnight so super quiet. The staff were very nice. We arrived at about 3:30pm and planned to visit the thermal area the next day. (boat ride across the lake). They asked if we wanted to see the thermal area now and still go the next day. We took them up on the offer. They have nice toilets with sinks that they offered to keep open all night for us. They even have free internet which was very fast - no telephone reception though. I strongly recommend camping and the thermal area itself is one of the best

Geothermal area on a little island. Very interesting geothermal pools and boat trip and free coffee.

Here you will see some waterfalls of all colours, blue and orange are the main ones - the walk is very simple and the track is very well done. You will remember this place!

Quite expensive, but very nice to see, especially when you have not seen volcanic activity before.

Beautiful park, not too expensive, it is self guided. Sadly the geyser eruptions at the place are rare.
