Rotorua Spring Guide

The Joy of Spring

To help you plan your stay we have put together a Rotorua Guide of some of our favourite things to do this spring.

Smile, it’s spring. There’s nothing more joyful than the arrival of spring. As the grass is getting greener and the flowers are starting to bloom, that spring feeling is becoming more and more alive. We’re excited for the promises of the many sunny spring days ahead, and the adventure the season will bring.

With the days becoming longer, and the weather getting warmer, it’s time to start enjoying more of the great outdoors and what Rotorua has to offer.

Whether it be a short family day-trip or couples weekend escape, you will find an abundance of things to do in Rotorua. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start creating those joyful moments with family, friends, and the people that put a smile on your face.

We know how hard it can be to search for inspiration to make the most of your weekends and downtime. To make things easier, we have created the ultimate Rotorua spring guide to help point you in the right direction.
