'The world's youngest geothermal system'
TripAdvisor Reviews consistently rate Waimangu the No 1 geothermal attraction in Rotorua

“Excellent geothermal self guide walk. We checked out this attraction on a sunny Sunday in mid-September. The warm day with a cool breeze was perfect for the 2-mile walk, and our midday hike was peaceful and quiet. The office gives you a great brochure that explains the sights along the trail, as well as advice on timing with the trails, free bus pickups, and lake tour. You see volcanic craters, geysers, boiling streams, steaming lakes, an unreal aqua-blue acid lake as well as birds. Great for little cellphone videos. The 45-minute boat tour was enjoyable and got you close to the source of all this action: Mt. Tarawera (which erupted 131 years ago). The office has restrooms, a gift shop, and a cafe." Visited September 2015
