Who would have thought that people would LOVE, absolutely LOVE,… visiting a FARM SHOW… of all things.
But when you think about it, not many people would actually get to milk a real live cow nowadays would they? Or see sheep dogs at work, or feed lambs.
You get all that and more here at one of the best attractions in Rotorua so be prepared to get interactive.

Rotorua Mountain Biking
Now it's time for some serious
action. The bike trails in the Whakarewarewa Forest are right up there
with the best in the world.
In terms of experiences in Rotorua this would have to rate as definitely deserving of being in the Top Ten Places To Visit.
The trails cater to everyone. From leisure riders to hard-core downhill racers... tiny tots to
Grandparents... did I leave anyone out? So, what are you waiting for,
come on out.

While I'm on the subject of the Whakarewarewa Forest, walkers and runners aren't left out either.
A visit to the Redwoods
is not to be missed. It can be as hard or as easy as you like with
scenery that can take your breath away. Tracks cater to all levels of
Treetop walks are also available.

Te Pā Tū (previously Tamaki Māori Village) has won the

makes it one of the top ten places to visit here.
the Tamaki Brothers who created this business it is all about the

I know white water rafting is probably not everyone's cup of tea but not every trip is about being on the edge.
Some of the rivers meander along lazily without the death-defying rapids and you get to see some gorgeous scenery.
Think what the folks back home would say. White water rafting is white water rafting isn't it? There is something for everybody including children.
