Rotorua offers a lot of unique attractions not available in many other places. Being geologically active, it offers many natural sights and outdoor activities centered around the land. The Luge is our top thing to do as we find ourselves going back again and again. A season pass is definitely in order there. There is also much to do in the lakes and rivers around Rotorua. The Hobbiton movie set is not too far and with the local Redwoods Treewalk another not to miss attraction. Nearby Taupo offers some more unique things to do which are not to be missed.
