Who is this?
Located between Rotorua and Taupo off SH5, Waikite Valley Thermal Pools Springs n Spa officially opened in 1972, built by approximately 4000 hours of local voluntary labour and various fundraising efforts by the local community.
The pools are fed by Te Manaroa Spring, the largest single source of boiling water in New Zealand. The early setters devised a means to divert and cool the spring water, flowing it over a series of cascades to cool the water to suitable bathing temperatures.
There’s now a choice of six bathing options with temperatures between 30 and 41 degrees Celsius, including the original family friendly Settlers Pool, the Sit and Soak Pool, and the Garden and Pergola Pools, overlooking the Otamakokore stream and the Waikite Valley. There’s also private pools where you can control the temperature of your pool and enjoy the views.
While there have been many developments since the 70’s, the pools have retained their authentic kiwi charm and community feel, a favourite with the locals and something of a hidden gem.
There’s a native eco-trail walk up to Te Manaroa Spring, where you can watch the boiling water bubbling out of the ground and flowing down through the cooling systems to the pools.
We also have a 26 site camping ground on site, with both powered and unpowered sites, and our campers receive unlimited access to the pool complex during their stay.
