Rotorua - Geothermal and cultural hotspot!
The compact CBD has everything you might need in the way of shops, eateries, and markets, all close to the scenic lakefront and fascinating geothermal displays.
Rotorua is well known for it's geothermal wonders and adrenaline-pumping activities, but did you know it's also a haven for mountain biking?
We highly recommend exploring outside of the main township to take full advantage of the lakes, mountain biking and walking trails, and natural hot water springs.
