Rotorua is a premier international tourist destination – famous throughout the world for its unique geothermal sites, spectacular scenery, rich Maori culture and wide range of adventure based attractions. More recently, Rotorua has become recognized as the global epicentre of Downhill Mountain Biking – each year hosting the Crankworx World Championships, boasting the best facilities in the southern hemisphere. The city’s central setting allows easy access to Hamilton, Tauranga and Auckland and in addition is within close proximity to the beaches and ski fields.
