- One of the Pacific’s most active thermal areas, Rotorua is a place that must be experienced. Almost otherworldly, there is something quite primal about exploring the mudpools, hot springs and discovering the geysers.
- Rotorua is also a place of significance to Maori. It's name comes from 'Te Rotorua-nui-a-Kahumatamomoe' which translates as 'The second great lake of Kahumatamomoe'. Kahumatomomoe was an early Maori explorer.
- Famous people from Rotorua include: Jean Batten (aviatrix), Valerie Adams (Gold medal winning shot putter), Temuera Morrison (actor), Dylan Hartley (Rugby union player for England), Cliff Curtis (actor) and Wayne 'Buck' Shelford (legendary All Black)
- There are 17 lakes in the region. Collectively they are known as The Lakes of Rotorua.
