Travel through a rich Horticultural area where you will pass Kiwifruit, Avocado and Citrus Orchards and the Dairy Farms that form the basis of the areas economy.

Arrive in the “Thermal and Cultural” wonderland of Rotorua where you can see local historic sites including The Government Gardens and The Rotorua Museum which is located in the world famous bath house building, an architectural icon in itself.

You will have time to browse some genuine New Zealand made gifts and souvenirs before your visit to an authentic Maori Village where you will see the natural wonders of boiling mud, geothermal hot pools and geysers.

Journey on a picturesque drive past a selection of Rotorua’s spectacular lakes before arriving at the shores of the blissfully peaceful Lake Tarawera.
