The geothermal wonderland of Rotorua is one of the best places to go in New Zealand. Some of its attractions, however, are ridiculously overpriced. Rotorua can be a real drain on the tourist’s pocket, but it doesn’t have to be. If you want to see hot pools, mud pools, a geyser and a steaming lake – basically everything you go to Rotorua for – for free, look no further than Kuirau Park.
My family always goes to Kuirau Park, and we went again just a few weeks ago. It was raining, but that just made the steam more spectacular. Seriously, the lake looked like it was in The Mists of Avalon. I got some awesome pictures. See for yourself:
And now for the lake:
And the rainy pic of the day:
