Family friendly activities in Rotorua

Monday, 24 September 2018

Rotorua has been attracting families for decades. In fact most New Zealanders have fond childhood memories of visits to Rotorua at least once in their childhood. Many remember clearly feeding the trout at Rainbow Springs, riding the luge in the 1980"s when it had the "Big Dipper" or bathing in the hot pools at a motel along Fenton Street - the main hotel strip of Rotorua.


Rotorua Canopy Tours is an awesome activity for all family members to love!

Well, these days Rotorua is more popular than ever for those fun family activities and memorable family holidays. The old favorites are still here - you can still roar down the advanced track at the luge, still feed the trout at the Rainbow Fairy Springs, walk through Kuirau Park and be amazed at the bubbling hot pools and still see the sheep being mustered up by the sheepdogs at the Agrodome.
