Nau mai i raro i ngā marumaru o ngā tohu o te whenua. Haere mai i raro i te parepare o te tauwhirotanga o te hapori o Rotorua kāinga.
Welcome ‘neath the shelter of the shade of our many landmarks. Welcome and feel safe under the care of the many people that call Rotorua home.
Nau mai, haere mai – welcome to Rotorua. We’re proudly known for our geothermal landscapes, lakes and forests, Māori culture and our manaakitanga (hospitality). We hope you settle in well here and we look forward to sharing our heritage with you, as you share yours with us.
