A picturesque journey through Kiwifruit Country, one of NZ’s most abundantly productive regions, will transport you inland to the gorgeous Rotorua Lakes area, and to historical Moose Lodge. Magnificently perched on the edge of Lake Rototiti, you can wander through the timeless rooms and spaces where Queen Elizabeth II and family stayed on two separate occasions. Then visit the nearby geothermal expression known as Hell’s Gate. As you stroll around boiling mud pools and through billowing clouds of geothermic steam, you’ll discover a host of fascinating explanations and historical references to the Maori history of the geothermal wonderland.
