Nocturnal adventure Glow-worm tour

187 reviews
Even on the cloudiest night, the New Zealand glowworm lights up the darkness in a lucky few spots across the country. This short evening bush-walk departing from Rotorua involves a short drive, a walk through picturesque native bush and the chance to see these increasingly rare creatures. Tack this tour onto the end of a thrilling day in Rotorua instead of hiring a car for an almost two-hour drive west to visit the exceedingly popular Waitomo Caves. This is one of the easiest ways to experience Aotearoa’s unique glowworm habitats.

We visited the Blue Baths while touring the Government Gardens in Rotorua. The building surrounding the pools is a prominent feature in the gardens, with it's lovely Spanish mission-style exterior and art deco arches. The beautiful blue pools contain geothermally heated water. At the time we visited, the pools were open for public bathing from 10 to 6 daily for $11 per person.

We went swimming her on 2 afternoons after our main activities of the day. The water is beautiful and the pools are tiled, quaint, and look like 1930. The bathhouse is mind blowing ancient facility that still works! The admission was only 11$NZD per person, bring your own towel.

The Blue Baths was the location of our annual works conference and what a fantastic place it was. The history of the place makes it really special and having dinner in, or should I say on the indoor swimming pool, was quite intriguing.

This was a special place to have a swim - very atmospheric, very quiet and very cheap! You can just visit the place, but why not enjoy the pool?
