1 Day Tour
This special tour is offered only by Navi - enjoy TWO of New Zealand's most famous destinations in just one day !
Discover the real Middle-earth on the most picturesque private farmland near Matamata in the North Island of New Zealand, where you can visit the Hobbiton Movie Set from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogy in a fascinating guided tour.
The set has been completely rebuilt and can be seen just as it appeared in the films.
Kuirau Park, in the heart of Rotorua is New Zealand’s only geothermal public park and features:beautiful gardens,a crater lake, mud pools, hot springs,free thermal foot baths.
In the early 1800s, the small lake in the centre of the park was much cooler and was known as Taokahu. Legend tells us that a beautiful young woman named Kuiarau was bathing in the waters when a taniwha (dragon) dragged her to his lair below the lake. The gods above were infuriated and made the lake boil so that the Taniwha would be destroyed forever. From that time on, the bubbling lake and the steaming land around it have been known by the name of the lost woman, although the spelling has changed a little from Kuiarau to ‘Kuirau.’
The free Kuirau Park Footbaths are remarkable for soaking your feet in. Enjoy the lovely surroundings, especially on cool days as steam from geothermal vents surround you.
