Additional Location Information

Surrounded by native bush, forrest and wildlife, the pristine lake environment of Tarawera is great for trout fishing, swimming, watersports, bush walks and generally just relaxing. The house is 20 Minutes from the thermal wonderland of Rotorua with it's extreme sports, New Zealand cultural experiences, shopping and thermal activity.

Tragedy shaped this remarkably beautiful lake into the broad, branching lake it is today. The 1886 Tarawera eruption raised the lake by 12 meters, drowning a small valley between lava flows. A very interesting visitors attraction, Te Wairoa or the Buried Village, lies close by the southwest shore. Over 100 years later the landscape around the fiery mountain, Tarawera, is lush, green and blissfully peaceful.

Lake Tarawera Scenic Reserve is an excellent spot for fishing, boating, bush walking, picnicking and mountain biking. Tarawera Landing, eight kilometres from Rotorua, is where scenic boat trips depart from and is a short walk from an archeological site of Maori cave drawings. These are an important part of New Zealand’s history and must be respected as such.

There are a number of incredible walks through native bush to spectacular waterfalls that burst from fissures in the rock face in the area. One of NZ's Great Walks is currently being constructed around Lake Tarawera. The first leg from The Buried Village to Hotwater Beach is now completed. Our friends can do pick ups & drop offs with their boat "THE FAT PIGEON TOO". There are many other walks as well; eg to The Tarawera Falls & to Lake Rotomahana to see where the pink & white terraces used to be.
