Hang Out At The Rotorua Mall

During this period of uncertainty, some local attractions, businesses, hotels and motels may be closed or have limited hours. Please check with the operator when booking. For those of you who cannot visit New Zealand due to border closures, enjoy a virtual visit to Rotorua. Hopefully we get to see you in person real soon. Stay healthy and take care! —Karen

Rotorua Mall - Large national chain stores plus small, owner-operated retail businesses and a food court all hang out at the Mall, also known as Rotorua Central Mall.

It sure is a strange place, all spread out with the shops covering a wide area. Basically, another town centre has been built right next to the old one.

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
