We stopped off here whilst driving a motorhome from Taupo to Rotorua. We made no effort to arrive by 10:15 to see the Lady Knox Geyser, but had a great three hours here wandering the three trails through the thermal park.
We thoroughly enjoyed spending time taking in the amazing mud pools, fumaroles, steaming lakes and springs. The colours, sulphuric smells, hissing and bubbling sounds are a feast for the senses and a visit here is to be highly recommended.
On your way from the main road you will see a sign reading 'Mud Pool'. Please don't ignore this because it is larger and more active than any of the mud pools you will see inside Wai-O-Tapu - and it's free!
