Wairakei Holidays

You'll find this area approximately 320 kilometres to the north of Wellington. It's also around 8 kilometres to the north of Taupo.

Kids are going to love a visit to this region due to some of the child-oriented attractions available. The Prawn Farm and Mind Junction are good spots to check out first.

Take some time out from the commotion of the city and relax in one of the scenic environmental reserves. A couple of recommended places that are worthy of a squizzy include Orakei Korako Geothermal Park and Cave and Wairakei Terraces & Thermal Health Spa. Wairakei Natural Thermal Valley is another great option.

If you enjoy a round of golf, pull on your most colourful polo shirt and spend a relaxing day at the Wairakei International Golf Course.

If you've got more time than you thought, and you've already visited pretty much all of the most popular landmarks and tourist spots, don't worry, there's still plenty to do. Consider visiting the slightly more humble sites, like Aratiatia Rapids.
