“Hells Gate geothermal attraction is Rotorua's most active geothermal park and is known as the "AWESOME BEAST" of New Zealand Geothermal attractions.”

Hells Gate geothermal attraction features boiling hot pools and erupting waters with temperatures in excess of 100 degrees Celsius; steaming fumaroles; hot water lakes; sulphur crystals and deposits; New Zealand's largest active mud volcano; Southern Hemisphere's largest hot water fall and even examples of land coral. See, feel and understand the awe of Irish Playwright, George Bernard Shaw as he gazed upon the land and gave it the English name "Hellsgate" as he believed he had arrived at the gates to Hell. A primeval setting displaying the awesome RAW POWER of the earth and its geothermal nature.

See, touch and be amazed with the unique geothermal muds of the Hells Gate geothermal park - the black geothermal mud used for more than a century in the treatment of arthritics and rheumatism, our ice cold white geothermal mud that changes its form from solid to liquid and back again, that is used for the relief of burns; and the warm silky grey geothermal mud that gently exfoliates the skin. Hells Gate geothermal park is the only geothermal attraction in New Zealand that produces these three types of geothermal muds making Hells Gate geothermal attraction in Rotorua a unique geothermal mud experience.

Follow the footsteps of warriors old.through the swirling clouds of steam, past the pool where the Maori Princess, "Hurutini" lost her life for her people; see the violent geothermal activity of the "Inferno" with two erupting pools aptly named "Soddam" and "Gomorra" by George Bernard Shaw and then on to the "Kakahi Hot Water Fall, where warriors would return after battle to remove the "Tapu" of war and heal their wounds at the only Maori-owned area of geothermal in New Zealand.
