Rotorua Info

Rotorua is one of the most famous destinations in New Zealand, and has a long history of welcoming visitors...


From the moment people arrive in Rotorua they know they're somewhere quite different. There is a scent of sulphur in the air, and at nearby geothermal hotspots there are spouting geysers, acrid-smelling mud pools bubbling and belching, and warm geothermal pools and ponds that create a kaleidoscope of colour. Rotorua is also the heartland of New Zealand's Maori culture, and visitors can enjoy a performance of song and dance, followed by food cooked in a traditional hangi (cooked in an earthen oven). With 11 major lakes, the Rotorua region is one of the country's prime trout fishing spots where you are practically guaranteed a catch, especially if a local professional guide is hired. Activities and Attractions abound, with something to satisfy everyone from sightseeing to adrenaline pumping adventure options.

Talk to Multi-Day Adventures for great group tours... Visitors can get up close and personal with New Zealand farm life, walk through geothermal hot spots, have a thrilling 4WD experience through native bush or up a volcano, raft or sledge the mighty local rivers or take a bungy jump, jet boat ride and much, much more.


After a hard day's sightseeing or strenuous activity, a soak in a natural hot thermal mineral spa is totally relaxing.

Rotorua is also the Spa & Wellness centre of New Zealand and offers a wide range of Spa & Wellness treatments to relax and rejuvenate.

Rotorua has over 13,000 visitor beds on offer each night to cater for a myriad of visitor expectations.

International hotels have recently been built and/or refurbished to cater up to a 4 star deluxe option. Luxury lodges are scattered amongst the natural environment featuring privacy and seclusion.

As well, a wide range of middle-of-the-road and budget priced accommodation is available. We recommend friendly locals like Holiday Inn, YHA Rotorua and Lake Okareka Cottage.


Rotorua has something for everyone, from family groups, to the independent traveller, from budget travellers to those seeking luxury accommodation, from conference and incentive groups to those looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, from weekend getaways to week long stays.


Enjoy a wide range of cafe and restaurants like Zippy Central and the Pig & Whistle Pub. And if you are "self-catering" then the Pak 'n Save Supermarket offers great food at great prices.
