It sure is a strange place, all spread out with the shops covering a

Carpark & Location on a Map
If you don't know it, getting around in the car-park is a mission. It defies logic the way it's been built as there are dead-ends or
through-roads that are hard to see from a distance. You'll see what I
mean if you visit here with a car. Keep your wits about you.
Bus stops have been added too which contributes to the madness at times.
There are four
entrances to the block that houses the Rotorua Mall area. They are
located on Amohau St, Fenton St, and two on Victoria St. The Amohau St
entrance is a nightmare as cars get banked up because of shocking
planning. It's a pet peeve for a lot of us here. Avoid it like the plague.
Looking at the block on the map you will also find additional businesses that can mostly be accessed from within the block:
- McDonald's Top-right, entrance is on Fenton St)
Access the following from the Mall entrance
- Cobb & Co Restaurant
- Burger King
- The Bottle-O Liquor Store
- The Cheesecake Shop
- Pizza Hutt Mostly for takeaways, no restaurant
- Just Kebabs
- Z Petrol station
