If you're heading to Taupo via Rotorua this is a must. We got there at sunrise and enjoyed the experience to ourselves. Magical!

I took my daughter, nephew, grandson and granddaughter to Kerosene Creek before Easter for a holiday day trip. The water was just right for a soak in the running water, in places it was like being in a spa pool.
Easy access to the river and good parking.

A friend and I visited and spent a great couple of hours in the warm waters of Kerosene Creek. There are toilets/changerooms at the car park. Our visit was marred somewhat by a group of young men who came with chilli bins filled to capacity with alcohol . They were rowdy and put especially young children off. Kerosene Creek is free and just a short easy walk from the car park.

Kerosene Creek is a free to enter hot water creek with a beautiful waterfall. This place is so mesmerizing, my husband and I couldn’t wait to change into our swimming gear and jump into this really hot natural pool. By the time we got out, we were both red. A must go!

Place is really amazing of North Island, we were here in Dec 2017 and yes water is naturally hot flowing through the creek, the excursion is free of cost compared to Polynesia Spa and other thermal Spa of Rotorua however there is very little space to get into the water and you may have to struggle to find a place which is less crowdy.. Nevertheless experience of getting into natural pool compared to artificial pools is worth it..
