Sulphur City

Surrounded by lakes and featuring impressive areas of geothermal landscape, the city of Rotorua offers an otherwordly landscape and a welcoming, peaceful environment, with the culture of the native Maori people very much in the foreground.
Change things up with these side-trips from Rotorua: Cambridge (Cambridge Museum & The Don Rowlands Centre Lake Karapiro), Taupo (The Locked Room, Huka Falls Walkway, &more) and Hobbiton Movie Set (in Hinuera). And it doesn't end there: get interesting insight from Tours, take in the natural beauty of Te Puia, trek along Lake Okareka Walkway, and make a trip to Whakarewarewa - The Living Maori Village.
