Another short drive today because of the stops we’ve planned. After just 52 Km we arrived at Wai-O-Tapu, one of the many geothermal parks in the area. A stroll along the walking paths brought us along the red and blue colored Champagne pool and several craters and bubbling mudpools.
When we arrived in Rotorua we walked around part of the city near the museum with croquet grounds.
We then checked in to our B&B just North of the city (and away from the sulfur smell).
The day ended with dinner, cultural show and glowworm walk in he Mitai Maori Village.
