Thousands of years in the making, explore spectacular nature at New Zealand’s most colourful natural volcanic area, Wai-o-tapu Thermal Wonderland. The modern Visitor Centre provides the gateway to this world class geothermal attraction. Walks through the area provide a unique opportunity to view a wide range of features including the Champagne Pool, coloured hot and cold springs, steaming ground, expansive vistas, huge volcanic craters and sinter terrace formations. The Lady Knox Geyser erupts daily at 10.15am and the nearby ever active “Mud Pool” add other dimensions to the experience. Wai-o-tapu Thermal Wonderland is easily accessible from Rotorua or Taupo.
