This attraction is free. It is on the way from Taupo town to Huka Falls. Wear your swimsuit before coming to this place since there is no adequate place to change your clothes. Spa itself is really warm enough to relax muscles.

What a beautiful park to have a relaxing stroll. It is capped by a free to use natural hot spring flowing into the river. Young and old enjoy the soothing hot springs.
