Living in Rotorua


​Our district is ideal for professional couples and families that have a passion for life and the outdoors.
Here you have time to kayak, water-ski, fish, mountain bike, horse ride or soak in a thermal hot pool, drop the kids off to school and get a coffee before work.
We have an abundance of natural resources including 18 volcanic lakes, 3 major rivers, 200,000+ hectares of indigenous and exotic forests and farmland, numerous geothermal fields, 120 wetlands and over 110 reserves, gardens and parks free for public use.
