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

The lake front is beautifully maintained and with the swans and seagulls is worth a visit - good pathway to take a wander along. A must do in Rotorua.

We have been to visit Lake Rotorua a couple of times and is very nice to walk along. THere are lots of swans there though and the black ones can be a bit nasty at times. There are lots of attractions there and even have a scenic plane ride if you want too. There is always something happening on the green next to the lake in town. SO plenty to see and do..

We were here for New Year's Eve and the firework display was fantastic. I was at London's Millenium display and this was better than that especially the finale - the sky was completely filled with colour and the noise was tremendous.

so beautiful to the eyes and lots of breeze hitting your face with ducks and seagulls by your side. what a sight to behold and you can see an island that catches the horizon makes us feel part of the whole picturesque landscape of rotorua... this lake with its surrounding park is a must when arriving at the city of rotorua......... nice sunset to watch and by the side of your loved one........
