"a world famous resort and an insight into Maori culture"
Rotorua is one of NZ's most popular and longest established tourist areas. Allow at least one full day in the city and surrounding areas, but to take in the best of all the things offering would be at least two full days.
The Agrodome is a live sheep show which will give you an insight into this vital NZ industry.
At Rainbow Springs huge trout loll lazily in a stream watching the tourists go by. You'll also get to see the native Kiwi, a national icon. And a tuatara the last of the living dinosaurs. You can also take The Big Splash, is a 9 min. journey through time exploring the ecological evolution of New Zealand.
A Maori hangi (feast) and concert. Several of the hotels in the city have a concert and feast
Take the gondola which lifts you 900m up Mt Ngongotaha for a panoramic view of the region. If you want to come down the adrenalin way, ride the luge a gravity slide ride on a specially designed cart (luge). Guaranteed fun for kids of all ages.
Whakarewarewa is OK as far as it goes, but some of the many other thermal areas in the region present different forms of thermal activity and it's worth taking the time to see something different. Which to choose? Any. They are all different.
Go paddle your own canoe on the Kaituna River, or horse riding: over farm land and through native bush.

Just About Everything You Ever Needed To Know To Get The Most From Your NZ Holiday

Yes, all that. But more, much more.

And it's all written by a local - not a visiting "editor" - who has been travelling and writing about the country for 30 years. I can give you hints and tips that only a local could possibly know - ideas that will save you time, money and tears.
This is important: No one has paid for inclusion in this guide. There are no ads and I rarely, if ever, accept free rides, accommodation etc. That way I am totally free to recommend whatever or whoever I choose.
