    ... were pretty hairy at times but definitely one of the better ways to get to the falls, which were spectacular. Feeling particularly energetic, we mosied on up to the Aratiatia Dam (a 20 km round trip). We timed it just nicely and got to see the dam opening its gates to flush millions of litres down the river over a few minutes, before heading back round to the lake.

    Our day started off with us having to drop off a few members of the kiwi bus at the local spa heated by geothermal activity....we were not fussed by this as we had been to a similar place in Iceland, plus we had to pay and due to the budget we decided to take the free activity, which was ANOTHER WALK through a forest.

    ... warm due to the region's thermal activity. The creek gets its name from the smell that is a result of the sulphur in the water. People make an outing of going by bringing drinks and even putting candles on the shelf around the pool. It's down a gravel road off the main highway between Rotorua and Taupo. We didn't stop on our way south because we were in a rush to get to Wellington. The timing worked out well though. This place sounded like the perfect place to spend ...

    ... a few pubs on the waterfront, looking over the huge lake-the product of volcanic activity. Figures: Max depth 186 metres, surface area 61,600 ha, total volume 59km cubed I liked the place immediately and booked for two nights. I watched The Gilded Cage in the tiniest cinema screen I've yet been in-11 seats and not the biggest viewing area, but it worked and the film was a charm. On the window of the cinema a Wednesday ...
