Rotorua, Taupo & Coromandel

Visit Rotorua, Taupo & Coromandel

Introduction

Dramatic volcanic landscapes and Maori culture are the key reasons to visit the North Island's central thermal region. Rotorua offers geysers and hot springs, while sacred Mount Ruapehu, trout-filled Lake Taupo and the surging Huka Falls nearby provide more essential New Zealand experiences.

Meanwhile, its natural beauty and proximity to both Auckland and Hamilton makes the jagged Coromandel Peninsula a popular North Island touring destination for New Zealanders and overseas visitors alike.
