All reviews mud pools steam vents geothermal activity boiling mud steam coming steep climb interesting walk thermal area entrance fee walk takes per adult great walk takes about an hour minute walk walk around new zealand huka falls
We went here before rotorua so had nothing to compare to. The walk is easy the craters are interesting and a couple very noisy. I'm glad we did this one First as the others are much larger and more impressive. However for the entry price...More

I found the craters of the moon to be a very unique experience. It is beautifully laid out for a leisurely stroll without any pressure or crowds. It is extremely well maintained and you are able to see the activity up close. I would go for it. Reasonable entry costs. Cheapest coffee going as well.
