Rotorua
.

Seen by many as one of the most
interesting, entertaining, intriguing
and yet mysterious places to visit.
.

.

Never think you can get away with a "quick visit" to
Rotorua because you'll only be letting yourself down.
The first thing you'll notice is the strong smell of
sulphur in the air....this comes from the minerals in
 the ground and is  just one of the areas main attractions.
Natural beauty is in every corner of this busy city....
take the time to view them all....you won't be
disappointed.
Just one friendly word of warning.....if you're tempted to
purchase from the tourist shops there, chances are you'll
buy the same things in another town for a much lesser
price....don't  tell them you read that here!!

In the foreground is a sample of maori carving
and in the background is a typical lake scene.
The palm-like tree you see is called a punga.
these are a native of New Zealand and grow
right through-out both islands

Pools With A Distinct Difference
.

.
.These are the Champagne Pools in Rotorua.
They are created by thermal activity and at
times can be too hot to touch. These are the true
colours of them.....a very fascinating place

The very pretty Old Bath House which houses the
 natural tepid spring baths for public swimming
