Rotorua, New Zealand

Fortunately, we switched hotels a few days before we arrived in Rotorua and were rewarded with a great view of the lake.  Rotorua is overtly a tourist destination catering for backpackers and coach parties.  This was reflected in Eat Street where the bars outweighed the dining options and sparrows flew around restaurants terrorising the diners.

Rotorua Museum is well worth a visit, the Buried Village of Te Wairoa has a link below.  Wairere waterfall required a long decent and a strenuous climb back to the village.

Wai-O-Tapu was the best geothermal park we visited in the Rotorua area.

  1. Great scenes from Rotorua. Fun to see the Tourists again. Hoping Liz found some needlework or quilt shops with native works and patterns.
