This facility and walk is just a few metres off the highway north of Taupo and is a must-do. Uncrowded thermal walk, and the opportunity for a dip in the pools (and a massage) makes this excellent value for money.

I bought vouchers from Grabone and we were hoping to do this attraction on the way back to Rotorua on our recent holiday. It was raining that day and we were a bit pressed for time so we went in and asked how long it takes to see the attraction more or less and how long it takes to walk to the terraces. We couldn't get any clear answers, the lady wasn't very friendly or welcoming so we left it and that and didn't end up actually going in. I would recommend that the staff here work on hospitality and learn a bit more about the attraction so as to be able to give clear answers to visitors

We grabbed cheap tickets of grabone lucky we did as it seemed very run down no one was there when we went - we only did the walk aparetly its man made terraces so wasnt as cool as the real thing I guess. The pools do look alot better than De Bretts though so will go back there

We went along to the cultural evening with the hangi, the family singing and the Huka. Four hours of fun, great food and information, and all set in a fabulous location.
