Rotorua Museum and the Government Gardens

Although we only spent three days in Rotorua, we were very busy.

Along with our half-day visit to Te Puia and the thermal reserve, and the evening spent at Tamaki Maori Village, we also enjoyed side trips to view the Blue and Green Lakes, explore the Buried Village, spend a little time at Lake Tarawera, and picnic in the nearby redwood forest.

Te Puia and the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve

I probably shouldn’t admit to having a favorite city on New Zealand’s North Island. Every place we visited was amazing, and having a “favorite” would be like admitting to having a favorite child. (Which I don’t, by the way!)

However, if I were only able to return to one North Island city, I would choose Rotorua.
