Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.


The Rotorua Lakes district has one of the most distinctive natural landscapes in the country with the 18 sparkling crater lakes being considered a treasured asset or Taonga to New Zealand and the Te Arawa People. Lush natural landscapes, stunning lakes and unique hot pools make the area a must visit.

Many people who visit Rotorua don’t get to see the lakes district due to lack of transportation or simply just not knowing where to go. At Rotorua Duck Tours we will guide you on a spectacular journey through natural landscapes, travelling on land and lake in New Zealand’s only genuine WW2 amphibious landing crafts. The combination of our Ducks and the scenery make this one of the most unique Rotorua sightseeing tours.

Our guides are an attraction themselves and deliver a commentary that is both informative and entertaining. All ages and backgrounds find value in our commentary. Our drivers have proven time and time again that they are our most valuable asset, delivering interesting facts as well as historical stories and they do it all in a way that has people of all ages laughing along the way. For an unbiased opinion check out our reviews on TripAdvisor.

Paid $60 each. Brilliant tour guide called Grant who was very humurous and knowledgeable about Rotorua's beautiful lakes and geothermal areas. Highly recommend if limited time in Rotorua and if you want some eye-candy = Grant!!!!

Rotorua Duck Tours is a fantastic and informative way to see Rotorua. The tour guide was not only very funny but extremely knowledgeable on the area. Traveling in a WWII amphibious landing craft and being able to go on some of Rotorua's beautiful lakes was amazing. I didn't know that Rotorua had all of these amazing lakes. I would highly recommend this tour.

A tour in an old amphibious landing craft. A tourist tour around the city and in two lakes. Okay but not that exciting.

Funny driver, well infromed & always with a joke in the pocket. A little bit too expensive (90mins-$62)

Good fun - especially quacking at people in the street is a good laugh. Good way of sightseeing all of the lakes.
