water based

. So along with the geothermal wonders, many water-based activities such as fishing, boating and white water rafting are available. Geologically, Rotorua is in the middle of the Taupo Volcanic Zone, named after Lake Taupo, the largest volcano in the area. This geologically active zone produces the heat that is needed to drive all the geothermal activity. Along with many volcanic hills and mountains, the zone contains several major volcanic calderas (large subsidence craters). These are important for tourism because they host the region's largest lakes (including Lake Taupo and Lake Rotorua), and because geothermal activity tends to occur around their edges. Rotorua caldera, some 22 km (14 mi) across, contains the city and Mount Ngongotaha as well as the lake. It was created in a huge eruption around a quarter of a million years ago. With Rotorua's concentration of geothermal features, a significant amount of hydrogen sulfide is released into the air and the city has a unique "rotten eggs" smell. Get in By car Rotorua is a 3-hour drive (non-stop) south of Auckland, with several nice towns and villages along the way. There are two main routes: the first is via Hamilton, initially on State Highway 1, then joining State Highway 5 at Tirau. The other is via Matamata on State Highway 2 and 27, leaving SH 1 at Pokeno (50 km south of central Auckland) and rejoining it at Tirau. The Matamata route has lighter traffic and is probably more interesting for travellers, but the road is of a lower standard than SH 1. A third option to get amongst the rural farmland is to travel via Te Aroha and then south along old Te Aroha Road, stopping to see Wairere Falls. Be careful on the narrow windy unpainted roads. There are two options from Tauranga. One is SH 2 via Te Puke, then SH 33. The other is SH 36 via Pyes Pa, which is now sealed all the way. Allow 1 hour 10 minutes non-stop From Wellington, follow State Highway 1 north to Taupo, then take State Highway 5. Allow 6 hours non-stop. By plane Rotorua also has an small airport serviced regularly by Air New Zealand who fly there from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch (and onwards to Queenstown (Queenstown (New Zealand)) without changing); a daily Qantas jet service also links the city to Christchurch (seasonal - suspended since late 2009). There are direct trans-tasman flights from Sydney twice a week, on Saturdays and Tuesdays. By bus Bus services are provided by Intercity Coach and Naked Bus All services arrive and depart from the main tourist information centre on Fenton Street. Services can also be booked there. Backpacker coach services tend to do pick-ups from the major hostels. By bike The same routes apply as for car drivers. Rotorua is 300 m (985 ft) above sea level, therefore a trip to the Bay of Plenty (Tauranga, Whakatane or Papamoa will be a mainly downhill trip of 70-100 km (44-62 mi). Travelling north towards Waikato also will be downhill to near sea level; conversely a trip to Taupo will be an up and down affair with some challenging climbs. Get around Commons:Category:Rotorua

in shopping terms relative to its population; however, the expansion of the "Palm Beach Plaza" and "Fashion Island" shopping centres in recent years has created a popular town centre. With the opening of the Domain Road State Highway 2 roundabout, travel times to Mount Maunganui and Tauranga have been reduced. The $455m Tauranga Eastern Link and associated interchanges due to be completed in 2016 will further reduce travel times


water activities

. Fishing, waterskiing, swimming and other water activities are popular in summer. The lakes are also used for event venues; Rotorua hosted the 2007 World Waterski Championships and Lake Rotorua was the venue for the World Blind Sailing Championships in March 2009. Lake Rotorua is also used as a departure and landing point for float planes. Other activities Rotorua is also home to botanical gardens and historic architecture. Known as a spa town

Rotorua

'''Rotorua''' ( southeast of the nation's most populous city, Auckland.

Rotorua has an estimated permanent population of , of which 3,600 live in the Waikato section.

Rotorua is a major destination for both domestic and international tourists; the tourism industry is by far the largest industry in the district. It is known for its geothermal (Geothermal (geology)) activity, and features geysers – notably the Pohutu Geyser at Whakarewarewa – and hot mud pools. This thermal activity is sourced to the Rotorua caldera, on which the town lies. Rotorua is home to the Waiariki Institute of Technology.

The Lakes of Rotorua are a collection of many lakes surrounding Rotorua.
