If you travel to Rotorua today, you will find a vibrant centre of tourism, and culture, as well as some of the most scenic landscapes anywhere.

Rotorua is  on the southern shores of the lake of the same name, in the Bay of Plenty area of New Zealand's North Island. The city is the seat of the Rotorua District, a territorial authority encompassing the city and several other nearby towns. Rotorua city has an estimated population of 56,000, with Rotorua district having a total population of about 69,000.  

The city is known for its geothermal activity, and has numerous geysers - notably the Pohutu Geyser at Whakarewarewa - and hot mud pools. The Rotorua region has 17 lakes. Fishing, waterskiing, swimming and other water activities are popular.

Rotorua is home to botanical gardens and historic architecture. Known as a spa town and major tourist resort since the 1800s, many of its buildings reflect this history. Government Gardens, close to the lakeshore at the eastern end of the town, are a particular point of pride.

Another major Rotorua attraction is mountain biking and Whakarewarewa Forest has been described as like a Disneyworld for mountain bikers.
