Thermal Wonderland

Thermal Wonderland.

Even tourists from the United States admit that the Thermal Wonderland of the Rotorua-Wairakei-Taupo zone is more spectacular than their own Yellowstone Park, because the “sights” are more concentrated on the New Zealand stage. In strange contrast with the wild play of hissing water and bubbling mud are fern-fringed fairy pools, cool glades of forest, and lakes of blue and green. This region is as colourful in parts as the palette of a jazz artist.

Nature has cleverly medicated some of these hot waters, which are turned to good use for suffering humanity in the well-equipped Government Spa at Rotorua.
