Fantastic experience

We had an excellent time at Wairakei Terraces. It is well laid out and informative. The staff were super friendly too. The extra section at the back is well worth a wander round. Especially on a sunny day. It’s just beautiful.

Lovely

It is a lovely experience but maybe not good value for money. The terraces are cool and the geyser was fun to watch. It took about half an hour to stroll around.

Interesting

Pleased we stopped instead of driving passed. The story behind the area and its development was interesting. Will visit again. I can see the terraces will improve with time.
