Come and explore a volcanic world of gushing geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pools and some of the largest and most amazing silica terraces in the world. Wander through the Hidden Valley and visit the thermal Ruatapu Cave which extends more than 36m down into volcanic tuff to the 'Waiwhakaata' or 'Pool of Mirrors' hot pool at the bottom. Open Every Day 8am - 4.30pm Orakei Korako boasts the most active geysers of any geothermal park in New Zealand. Up to 23 active natural geysers play freely through the area, which is constantly changing. Marvel at the number of boiling hot springs and the vibrant colours all around you, or take a native bushwalk through this untouched geothermal paradise. Feel free to bring the whole family - even your dog! Start your adventure with a piping hot latté from our MudCake Café - and finish with delicious fresh baking and a glass of wine. Stay connected while you're here with free wi-fi at the Visitor Centre. Admission prices include the ferry trip to and from the attraction, along with entrance to the valley and cave. The ferry runs on demand from 8am each morning, with the last trips leaving at 4pm over the winter months and 4.30pm during Daylight Saving. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

Love this place ! All natural, no fake ... you need time to go there because nature is unpredictable so you may need to be patient. This place really worth a stop ! It's amazing for geothermal lovers. (I preferred this place to Wai-o-tapu)
