ROTORUA DAY 1 : WAI O TAPU

Rotorua is the geo-thermal wonder of North Island with a lot of boiling mud pools & natural geysers. On Sunday morning we visited Wai O Tapu geothermal Wonderland. First stop we saw the mud pool and Lady Knox Geyser which erupts daily at 10.15 am because they drop a small amount of chemicals into the blow hole which breaks the liquid surface down below and allows the liquid and gas to escape under high pressure. We did all the walks which are clearly marked out with numbered stop points at each attraction. If you have limited time, you can do just one or two walks depending on how much time you have.
