Waikite Valley Thermal Pools is a unique place to come and experience the ‘Living Waters’ of the Te Manaroa Spring - the largest single source of 100% pure boiling water in New Zealand.

This pure spring water cascades into our main splash pool (35-38°C) and adjoining toddlers' beach area as well as the sit and soak pool (38-40°C) and our luxurious tranquil garden pool.

Our spacious heated changing rooms, with toilets and high pressure hot showers, are family-friendly and also offer wheelchair access.

Waikite Valley Thermal Pools are just a 30-minute drive from Rotorua and 45 minutes from Taupo.


From Rotorua, travel south towards Taupo on SH5 (the same route as Tamaki Maori Village, Waimangu Volcanic Valley and Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland). Turn right onto Waikite Valley Road (opposite the Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland turn-off) and follow the Waikite signs for 6km.
