When we reached Auckland, we headed to Rotorua.
Rotorua is one place where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are most evident. This city, on the Volcanic Plateau, has one of the world’s most lively fields of geothermal activity and sits squarely on the Pacific Rim of Fire.
Gondola: situated on the side of Mt Ngongotaha (487asl). Take in the 180 panoramic views of Lake Rotorua, the city and surrounding district as you travel along the 900m cableway to Skyline's upper complex. An all weather attraction.
