Beautiful short walk while you are breathing the fresh air to the most amazing spring. It’s nice for children to know there are still pure water available on earth.

Lovely short walk through the bush to see the springs with our 11 & 9 year old. Serene spot and while the supporting infrastructure has certainly evolved in 20 years, Pupu is still just a beautiful spot to savour.

A lovely and easily accessible walk suitable for strollers and wheelchairs too. A loop track takes you though some glorious woodland to the Spring which is amazingly beautiful. Gushing 14,000 litres a second it is also mesmerisingly thought provoking. There were pairs of Paradise Shelducks...More

Pupu Springs is worth the trip. The colours of the water is spectacular, the history is fascinating and the walk there was easy. The start is close to the carpark and takes you on an easy 1km loop walk. I would recommend you walk clockwise...More

Crystal clear water but unfortunately the tap was not in used, so we couldn’t taste the water. It was a short walk, 20 minutes to finish the entire route. Highly recommended!

Nice place to go if you have 1-2 hours free. The springs are really beautiful, very clear water. The trail is easy and well maintained and can be done in 20-45 mins depending on your pace.

A beautiful NZ icon, many years since I have been there. On returning, great new info entrance but was saddened with the strange concept that no one can now touch the water. Water is everyones to enjoy, visitors to the springs being able to feel...More
