The weather was not kind, with wind and the odd shower. Despite this,what a magic wonderland of thermal activity. The paths are well maintained, and safety signs prominent throughout.

Very reasonably priced at $8 per adult. Nicely laid out and boardwalks abundant. There are a few optional steep steps and great view from the lookout, so worth the climb up there which isn’t too difficult.
Highly recommended.

This was a cheap place to visit but there was not a lot of variety to see. It was mostly steam venting from holes with one or two small mud holes bubbling. The walkways were very well maintained and clean. For a pleasant three quarters of an hour walk I would recommend this place.

Hadnt ridden these for years. We rode from Taupo to Aratiatia Dam and back along the highway side of the river to meander behind the Wairakei Resort before heading into the Craters. Such fun
