Add to List

Come and explore the bubbling and streaming lands of Wairakei Terraces - A geothermal wonderland and the jewel in the crown of this magical region.

Wairakei is highly valued by Maori's who settled here over a 1,000 years ago and enjoyed the waters therapeutic and healing powers.

    Hot pools and walkway

    Me and my friend did the walk and then the hotpools, really enjoyed the walk it is only a 10/20 minute walk depending on how many pictures you like to take, the hot pools were stunning, it wasn't busy. Really enjoyed my time, and would definitely go again.

    Wairaei Terrace Walkway

    We enjoyed our walk around the terraces and getting really close to the geyser.I wouldn't do it without soaking in the pools afterwards, which were super amazing.

    Confusing

    We were lost when try to reach this destination. Our gps bring us to other place which is at the top of the hill near to the geothermal plant so we decide to turn back to the first intersection where we find out the Wairakei is just beside the intersection and right inside the Wairakei spa. We ask the spa receptionist to confirm are we in a right place and she say yes. She open the door to the garden which lead to the Wairakei Teracce and give us a simple map. It's take only 10 minutes to us to finish the walk. I have to say the price is not worth and compliment the place but at least we get some idea about the geothermal and what it look like right in front of us.
