New Zealand - day 6 - Rotorua to Taupo

A travel blog entry by nath_and_rach


Today we spent the morning enjoying a wander around Rotorua with Liam and Anna, walking around Kuirau Park to see spectacular sights of geothermal activity. Steam rose up from pools of bubbling water, even mud pools were bubbling! The large lake in the centre even displayed geothermal activity. It was a bizzare sight! Certainly no swimming around here! After an enjoyable walk we chilled out together at a local coffee shop ...

A travel blog entry by philg

So very full and after an active day we eventually got back to the site and now it's about 10pm so off to bed...another chilled day ...

Last night in Rotorua it REALLY rained

A travel blog entry by janeandscott


... to look. Got to just outside Taupo and walked along the Waikato River to the Huka Falls, a scary amount of water thundering through a small space...no canoeists on this bit they would be fish food. Taupo lake is the largest in the country apparently, very lovely, sailing boats out and about and lots of good places to eat on the edge of the water. calamari and then ragout...mmmm. flashy campsite, cosy in our van ...
