“Lovely Sunset and Sunrise photos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

It's a great walk around the lake area, good playground for children, don't feed the birds! The cafe on the lake isn't much chop though, horrible coffee and very basic, take a picnic in the summer and enjoy the surroundings, lovely park.

“Relaxing...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We took a DUCK tour around Rotorua, and we went into Lake Rotorua. It is a charming, relaxing lake, perfect for fishing.

“Magic Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

It was truly beautiful - the lakeside café & watching Volcanic Air Safaris planes & helicopters was awesome. A lovely place to just sit and watch or wander around. We had fish & chips for dinner by the lakeside one evening. Magical
