In the morning we visit Wai-O-Tapu Geothermal Wonderland Sculptured out of volcanic activity and thousands of years in the making, Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland is considered to be New Zealand’s most colourful and diverse geothermal sightseeing attraction.
In the afternoon we make our way to the Agrodome Farm show. You’ll hear amazing facts and have a few laughs as you’re introduced to 19 breeds of sheep. The sheep are not only the stars of the show you will be entertained by the remarkable sheep dogs as they demonstrate their ability to respond to commands and keep those sheep (and ducks!) in line!
Your day of discovery and fun starts with pick-up from your Hotel/accommodation in Rotorua
Once on board your vehicle for the day, we make our way to the first attraction Wai-O-Tapu. Along the journey your driver/guide will give you full commentary through the beautiful New Zealand countryside and deep dark forestry.
On arrival we start at the largest hot bubbling mud pool in New Zealand. This was originally the site of a large mud volcano which was destroyed through erosion in the 1920’s. From here we then make our way the the Lady Knox Geyser where you will experience an eruption to heights of 10 to 20 metres. Listen to the guide as they tell you stories off how this geyser was discovered and the history of this unforgiving landscape.
A short drive and we arrive at the geothermal wonderland park. Step out to experience New Zealand’s most extensive volcanic marvel as you follow a clearly defined footpath that skirts a series of colourful hot springs, such as the Champagne Pool. You are introduced to a uniquely different natural landscape – the key to what you see lies below the surface – one of the most extensive geothermal systems in New Zealand, extending over 18-sq. km.
