Te Manaroa Spring Eco-Trail

Take a stroll on the Te Manaroa Spring Walkway and Eco-Trail to the largest single source of boiling water in New Zealand.

Experience the ‘Living Waters’ of Waikite Valley and see the violently magnificent Te Manaroa Spring as it discharges thousands of litres of geothermal energy into the Otamakokore Stream that winds its way downstream leaving a trail of calcite formations in its wake.

Of both geological and botanical interest, this informative educational Eco-Trail walk takes you to the Te Manaroa Spring. Along the way you will learn about ferns, mosses and formations only found in a few geothermal areas in the southern Rotorua area.
