    Rose was the lady we talked to. She helped us with the name of a restaurant for our 41 st wedding anniversary. She rang up to see if they had room for us and booked a table. She also suggested the rail trail at Awakeri and the hot pools just around the corner.

    Good exhibition center with Maori and European settler artifacts as well as local arts and crafts. There is historical and geological (earthquake and volcano) information also.
    It’s well displayed and has informative descriptions.
    It’s free (donations accepted).

    Popped in for a yummy fruity icecream after our picnic lunch at Blueberry corner! A ritual that we've done now for the 4th year of our holiday at Awakeri hot springs! Great place to checkout wether you're on your own couples or a family! Check then out you won't be disappointed! 🍨🍧

    I've been a few times up the river with the Kiwi Jet boat tour family and each time has been unique and exciting. The crew are amazing people that make you laugh and share their love for adventure and the trip up the river never gets old as it is truly beautiful. Great for all the family and friends. A must do around Whakatane !
