Today our guide around Rotorua Is the lovely rumble he is sharing some of his favorite adventure places.
Whakarewarewa Forest (The Redwoods) - The number one spot in Rotorua and a fan favorite for both pooches and humans. It is also Rumble's happy place. We love the forest because there's always an activity for everyone - whether you're into mountain biking, hiking/tramping, or just enjoying an afternoon with your dog on a nice and relaxed walk.
Centennial Park (formerly known as the Rotorua Tree Trust) - This park is one of the most scenic parks in Rotorua. In Spring, the cherry blossoms are a real highlight. In Autumn, you will start seeing the leaves turn red/brown and it's absolutely beautiful here! Just be careful as sheep graze here, so keep your pooches on lead!
Lake Tikitapu - the best spot for all the water-loving doggos out there. The water is fresh and warm in summer, and you can always take your pooches out on your kayak or paddleboard. There is a walking track going all around the lake which is also dog-friendly. This is our favorite spot for summer.
Kuirau Park - This park has natural geothermal hot springs, so you can check out all the natural boiling and bubbling geothermal activities that Rotorua is famous for! It is also a great place for a picnic and/or barbeques, and don't forget to check out the Farmer's market every Saturday.
Lake Okareka - this lake is great if you're a fan of camping! You can park your motorhomes at Boyes Beach and enjoy a lakeside camp with your pooch with beautiful sceneries. If you're into fishing, the spot is filled with rainbow trout. It's a great spot for picnic and swimming in summer, but bear in mind that dogs are only allowed here between 1 March to 14 December each year.
