Known as a spa town and major tourist resort since the 1800's, Rotorua is a geothermal wonderland. There are a number of geysers, notably the Pohutu geyser at Whakarewarewa, and hot mud pools located in the city, which owe their presence to the Rotorua caldera. Don't miss the opportunity to visit a traditional Maori Marae. Rotorua is also home to botanical gardens and some interesting historic buildings. Government Gardens, close to the lakeshore are also well worth visiting. Another of Rotorua's attractions is the mountain biking. Whakarewarewa (also known as the "Redwoods") Forest has been described as 'the Disneyland of mountain biking' and has some of the best mountain bike trails in New Zealand. Rotorua hosted the UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships, in August 2006.
