Wow, what an awesome experience we're still trying to get our head around all of this. So amazing, love the walk as you can go at your own pace. We were recommended by a friend to stop here and so glad we did.

Holiday walk
Jan 2021 • Couples
Gotta go there... awesome experience with good history lessons as you walk the boardwalks... great on a cloudy day as very little cover or shade in most places,
Friendly and informative staff who "smile"

Always delivers
Jan 2021 • Family
Craters of the Moon always delivers as expected. It is nice to return here every few years, especially as the children grow up. There are very clean and modern facilities and things are well explained. The service was helpful. The tracks are easily accessible.

ok actively in taupo

For only $8 this is pretty good activity in Taupo. The board walk in some parts needs repair with many boards rotting and uneven. My girlfriend tripped over twice and fell heavily hurting her knees.

Well run nature park
Dec 2020 • Couples
I've been meaning to visit here for about 30 years and I probably left it too late - seems that the geothermal activity has reduced in the past decade or two. However, Craters is still a worthwhile visit. The boardwalk is good and the information on signs that dot the park is valuable reading material. The actual geysers are much fewer than I expected and there were no active mud pools (maybe in winter it might be much more impressive). But it's worth visiting if you have a spare hour or two (no need to rush the 40 minute lap time...).

Interesting walk, clear sign posts, lots to see. Teenagers were not too impressed. Well kept, easy access to the centre. Worth a visit.

Come for a walk
Nov 2020
This place was so interesting, cant believe the amount of steam coming out of the ground. The walk was easy and the boardwalks extremely safe.
