A weekend at Rotorua

Including a visit to Hobbiton

As this is the first year of this public holiday we thought a break in Rotorua would be just the ticket. Hobbiton has been top of our international visitors list but many kiwis have not visited this attraction so we have included this attraction enroute to Rotorua.
The hot pools are great in winter and there are multiple options to choose from at the Polynesian Pools.

Matariki is a star cluster that appears in the early morning sky in New Zealand during the mid-winter months. It is one of the brightest clusters in the sky, containing hundreds of member stars. In the Maori calendar it was the sign for a new year. Known in New Zealand as Matariki it has different names around the world. In English, it is called by its ancient Greek name, Pleiades or the Seven Sisters. In Hawaiian it is Makali’i, ‘eyes of royalty’, in Japan it is Subaru, meaning ‘gathered together’.
