Rotorua may be famous as a geothermal wonderland, and for its forests and bike tracks, the luge and trout farms. But just outside Rotorua are a collection of 18 sparkling lakes that serve everyone from the fast paced water sports enthusiasts to fisherman and adventurers of every shape and size. There can be no favourites within the Rotorua lakes, they all have something to capture the imagination and leave a lasting impression.
On the 5th day before Christmas, my true love gifted to me … a beautiful lake-edge home on Rotoiti at Okere Falls.
With the Okere Falls only 400m as the crow flies, your own boat shed on Lake Rotoiti and the, only accessible by boat, Manupiria Hot Springs near by, you’ll find it hard not to think twice about this place. Check out the video, I could be here in a jiffy.
