Rotorua's rotten-egg aroma is the only downside to its position on a volcanic fault line. With 13 freshwater lakes within 20 minutes, Rotorua is all about getting outside - and getting muddy. There is a profusion of places to experience bubbling mud and geysers in "Rotovegas", the area at the top of Fenton Street. Once you've made the most of the mud, soar nearly 2000 feet on the Skyline Gondola for views of Lake Rotorua. Discover the lakes by paddle steamer, fishing charter or WWII amphibious vehicle.
