A long way out of town (approx 25 mins?), so I felt a bit guilty for burning the fossil fuels. Would be lovely if you choose to stay in the camping ground. Well away from the tourist hustle of Rotorua City.
The facility is open every day except Christmas from 10 am. I don't recall the exact price, but think it was something like $25-30 per adult for general admission. It's about 30 minutes from Rotorua
