About Waimangu Volcanic Valley

We connect people with the beating heart of the world’s youngest geothermal valley, its unique history and legacy. We share how the world began. We immerse visitors in the stories of the Mt Tarawera volcanic eruption, its people, and the resulting dramatic landscape changes that created this amazing part of the world.
