When we went, it was for an early time. The man at the desk was very helpful and gave us clear instructions on where and where not to go. We had been there many many years previous, so things were changed a lot. We walked to the start of the walking trail and looked at the many steaming areas of mud pools and small lakes. It was a cloudy and cold day but by the time we reach the look out we had warmed up. The information sheet which was given to us at the start of our trail provided the information on each area as we stopped and visited. Over all our time here was very enjoyable, we only saw one other couple on the track at the same time but people where coming in as we were leaving. We enjoyed our wander through the thermal area. Good walking shoes I feel should be warn, just to help in some slippery (loose metal) areas. We had fun and enjoyed the whole experience and was fun to be reminded of our past trip that we made with now past in laws. I would like to go again on a warmer day to get some great photos.

The self guided walk was a waste of money & we regret spending our time here.

Great self-guided exploration - brilliant pricing

Great experience and very enjoyable self-guided walk with lots of geothermal pools and geysers and lookouts. Very well priced and easy to walk and traverse. The numbered signs seem to be incorrect at some spots so I may suggest playing a fun game of ‘guess the spot’.
