Well kept park area, even in the rain we still enjoyed the beauty of the park. Make sure you stay on the track because even from a distance, you can feel the heat. It's well marked and maintained so it's a safe walk. Not crowded so got to take in the surroundings at our own pace.

Great to be able to walk through this steaming and bubbling site. It was fascinating to see just how powerful nature is.

Flat walking along well laid boardwalks made exploring the steam vents and i would recommend doing the "look-out loop". The view of Ruapehu across the hills and lake is amazing, especially with the field of steaming vents in front of you
