Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

A short drive through beautiful country brought us to Rotorua, a city of about 70,000 people, about 35% of them of Maori ancestry. World famous for its geothermal features (large-scale tourism development began here in the 1880s), in more recent years a host of other activities have been added, and we knew that our time would be both packed and expensive.

We had reservations at the Top 10 Holiday Park, but before checking in we stopped at the iSite and made reservations for a few activities over the next 24 hours. Outside the particularly impressive iSite is the geothermal footbath seen in this photo.
