Rotorua is known as a geothermal wonderland, with bubbling mud baths, potent sulphur and geothermal pools attracting people to the town for many years.

The Whakarewarewa forest is a stunning natural attraction. Escape the bustling of the Rotorua town centre and enjoy this welcome escape with a peaceful vibe and an outstanding range of exotic and native trees. You’ll feel small amongst the towering Californian Redwoods, and watch in awe as the sun pierces through the treetops.
Mount Maunganui is a gorgeous place on the east coast of the north island with one of the best beaches of New Zealand.

With viewpoints, rocks or other elements around to make the perfect Instagram shot!
