Waiotapu - Geothermal area

While down south on our long weekend out of Auckland we made our way to Wai-O-Tapu to check out some geothermal activity!

The water was green, yellow and orange.

The rocks were all volcanic like and suplhur stained and in many places were steaming.

This is the shallow area leading to the Primrose Terraces and surrounding the Champagne pool

If you go in Winter / Spring be prepared to get wet. Even after it stops raining the trees drip plenty of water on your head.

Dont fall in. In some places the path was steaming and warm to the touch.

The famous Champagne Pool
