“Free tour of natural violence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We liked this place as it's freely accessible and gives you an idea of Rotoruas volcanic landscape without paying big bucks for any of the bigger themed parks. It is certainly not as remarkable but worthwhile checking out.

“Most photogenic garden!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

It's a nice place to have a good stroll and take some nice photos of the NZ's most photographed building! (rotorua musuem) The garden is free so help youselves and don't hesitate to stop by the museum or the cafe for a nice cup of coffee!

“Nice garden close to many local tourist attractions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Lots of interesting attractions around the area within short walk or drive with plenty of free parking.
The rose garden is lovely and the museum is only a few minutes walk, the thermal bathhouse and the enclosed thermal spring just next to it - great to take lots of photos!
