Rotorua - Geothermal Hot Spot

by Julia Laporte October. 19, 2018 730 views

Rotorua is renowned for its geothermal activity in and around town. These features include volcanic crater lakes, spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools, hissing fumaroles and colourful sinter terraces and are rather impressive. In addition to enjoying the performances delivered by the living earth we also ventured a bit further out of town and stayed at a beautiful and remote campsite close to the Tarawera Falls which were just as spectacular.

smile Thank you. Far from it, actually - but I like experimenting and sometimes it pays off.
