Rotorua is a small town on the shores of Lake Rotorua. The surrounding areas are a geothermal wonderland, with geysers, boiling mud pools, and steaming craters - accompanied by the pervasive smell of sulphur. Rotorua is also a showcase of Maori cultural activities and a center of tourism. The Waikato River, Huka Falls and Lake Taupo (New Zealands largest) are found south of Rotorua.
