Old Walotappu Road, Waiotapu, North Island


The hot spring is a small stream and flows downhill through natural bush. Bathers have excavated small smooth rocks to form their own little hot pools that you can sit next to and enjoy the hot water cascading down. There's no admission charge. Take any rubbish away with you and leave no trace. Please note that it is not safe to put your head underwater. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

Great spot with hot water river and waterfall pool to dip in . Unpaved road down to it is not in great condition

Not the best road to get there - gravelled and full of potholes.
