Often described as a once in a lifetime trip and the highlight of a holiday spent in New Zealand, this is not to be missed! Experience roaring fumaroles, amazing colours and the sense of awe you get by stepping foot onto a live volcano!”

Natural Feature
“A day trip worthwhile to do. The track starts at West End Surf Beach and takes 30minutes or so to reach. Take your book a bottle of water and picnic lunch, to sit and relax under the mighty Pohutukawa trees that line this bay. Search for shells or fossick and explore the rock pools, swim or just enjoy this breath taking spot. Only reached by track or by watercrafts, a favourite local spot. Must see and certainly must take photos. 5/5”
