Activities and Local Attractions in Rotorua
Located in the Bay of Plenty in the heart of New Zealand’s North Island, Rotorua offers much more than geysers and bubbling mud pools! Read on to find out about the adventure experiences, family activities and scenery Rotorua has to offer – all just a short drive from your Rotorua motel accommodation at Fenton Court.
Hiking and Walking
Rotorua’s scenic landscape makes it ideal for hikers, walkers and mountain bikers. Take a leisurely walk alongside the Blue Lake, explore the Redwoods Forest, or try an all-day hike. Our hiking tracks are the best in the Southern Hemisphere.
Rotorua has become the birthplace of many world firsts, earning it the title of New Zealand’s Adventure Capital. You can dare to take on the world’s highest commercially rafted waterfall, go Bungy jumping, luging, sky diving, mountain biking, or take a scenic floatplane or helicopter ride. Check out more about Rotorua adventure activities.
Enjoy seeing wildlife and animals up close at Rainbow Springs Kiwi Wildlife Park and Paradise Valley Springs, or try mini golf at Putt Putt golf course.
Even in the city centre of Rotorua, you’ll notice the geothermal activity all around you! But just a short drive will take you to one of the nearby geothermal parks where you can see volcanic crater lakes, spouting geysers, colourful sinter terraces and acid lakes.
The Rotorua region is also one of New Zealand’s prime trout fishing spots; many of the 13 lakes and numerous streams are home to trophy-size Rainbow trout! We have a local professional fishing guide for hire for one person or a group – or for a truly unforgettable fishing experience, hire a boat or try fly-fishing.
