Exploring Rotorua, Rain or Shine!  

When you are in Rotorua, there are countless things to see and do, no matter the weather! From the exhilarating to the eco-friendly, the fast-paced to the photogenic, Rotorua offers both adventure and relaxation in spades. 

Famous Rotorua Photo Spots 

Don’t forget your camera – it’s about to get a good workout! One of the most beautiful attractions in Rotorua are the geothermal wonders of Te Puia. Witness bubbling mud pools and the Pōhutu Geyser as it shoots steam and water up high into the sky, making for unique and special photo moments for those epic ‘gram shots.  

For those who’re seeking a nature escape, a visit to the Redwoods Forest is a must. The tall redwood trees create a stunning scene, and as the sun peeks through the perfect photo opportunity beckons. Regardless of the weather, a treetops walk is a fantastic way to explore the beauty of nature and capture some stunning photographs.
