Welcome to Hamurana Springs!
Roughly 30 minutes drive around Lake Rotorua you will find the Hamurana Springs.
For us, it was meant to be, “just” a quick stop on our way up to Tauranga. As we arrive we were surprised. The car park is directly next to the stream that comes from the springs and flows into Lake Rotorua. The water is crystal clear. You can easily spot each and every living thing in that crystal clear water. It was stunning, and just the beginning.
There is a nice walkway along the stream guiding you to the springs. The springs are the deepest natural fresh water spring on the North Island. If you want more informations just follow this Link.
One of the springs is easy accessible via the walkway and will get you as close as possible.
We spent at least 30 minutes just watching the spring and his incredible blue color. So, our quick stop got slightly extended.
