“Thousands of Years in the Making. A Wonderland of Stunning Geothermal Activity.”
Thousands of Years in the Making. A Wonderland of Stunning Geothermal Activity. Explore spectacular nature at New Zealand’s most colourful volcanic area. Enjoy viewing unique volcanic features as you walk at your own pace along well defined tracks. Visit our first class Visitor Centre with retail and cafe facilities.
Your visit to Wai-O-Tapu would not be complete without taking the opportunity to visit what is locally known as the Mud Pool. This was the site of a large mud volcano which was destroyed through erosion in the 1920’s.
It now represents one of the best opportunities to experience the unique character and sounds of erupting mud in New Zealand where the activity is always guaranteed.
At 10.15am each day there is the opportunity to learn the history and mechanics of the Lady Knox Geyser during a presentation by an informed guide in the natural amphitheatre. It provides a unique opportunity to see a geyser in eruption to heights of 10 to 20 metres.
Out of this world! A must.
