Paddle Cruiser on Lake Rotorua
Volcano heli-flights from the jetty
or by float-plane
or why not have a float-plane each ?
A yacht race off Hannahs Bay, Rotorua
The lake front at Rotorua
A Maori whare (house) at the buried village
About the whare
Village was buried by an eruption - 10th June1868
Excavated by the Spencer family in 1930's
Another whare - buried under 1.5 metres ash & mud
About the stone storehouse that was uncovered
The storehouse carved from perlite
The front piece of a Maori Waka (canoe)
The Wairoa trout stream
The cascading Wairoa stream
About the Wairere falls nearly 30 metres high
The Wairere (or Wairoa) Falls
The access is very steep and winding
The lower section of the falls
View over the valley which was inundated with mud
Lake Tarawera used to be accessed from here
This tells what it used to be like here
Mount Tarawera - part of the Makatiki Dome complex
Across Lake Tarawera towards Hawaiki Bay
A clearer view of the domes of Mt Tarawera
The campervan at a slipway on Lake Tarawera
Lake Tarawera from just beyond the Buried Village
A Waka (Maori canoe) used as a monument
Info about the Lakes District
The Green Lake
The Blue Lake
Paddling in a geo-thermal stream - so warm.
The water was too hot to bear 50m upstream
Mud pool at Wai-o-tapu
Wai-o-tapu mud pools are massive
The heat given off is stifling
Action packed gurgling mud
The surface is bubbling away all over the place
Almost entices you in but too hot hereabouts
Steam erupts from the Waikite Valley
The heat source for the Waikite Valley
The boiling stream of Otamakokore
A steaming waterfall at Waikite
Water for the hot pools cools over these channels
The truck on the dunes at Papamoa Beach campsite
View over the Pacific from Papamoa campsite
Papamoa Beach overlooks Motiti Island
The Old Git on Papamoa Beach
Trousers rolled up - needs a knotted hankerchief
Day 33 Lake Rotorua to Papamoa Beach
