What to Expect
Travel reference:

Check out New Zealand's most colourful and unique geothermal sightseeing attraction! 

Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland's geothermal landscape has been sculpted by thousands of years of volcanic activity and extends over 18 square kilometres. This is the perfect activity for the whole family to enjoy! Wai-O-Tapu offers a variety of volcanic spectacles each with their own distinct character. Come see the beauty of the Lady Knox Geyser at 10:15 am every day. It provides a unique opportunity to see an eruption to heights of 10 to 20 metres!

Set your own pace over marked walking trails as you meander past the Champagne Pool, a naturally colorful hot spring that bubbles and fizzes just like its namesake! Don't forget to visit the Mud Pool, the largest mud pools in New Zealand, this was originally the site of a large mud volcano which was destroyed through erosion in the 1920's. You'll marvel at the vividly coloured hot pools, volcanic craters and steaming fissures in the geothermal park!
