    I've been going to Waingaro since an infant. Yes it may be outdated compared to other wealthy Springs but in general it does the job I expect it to do. It's become neglected somewhat but doesn't change the fact that the water is why I'm there; relaxation temperature, hydrotherapy, peace and the childhood memories flashing by when I look at each area of the site. I love the loud laughable characters of the owners and the smiling humble staff, they have...

    Went on a cruise on board the Pure Cruises catamaran in Lake Rotoiti and it was a lovely afternoon. The lake was beautifully peaceful and at one corner is a hidden gem - the Manupirua hot springs, accessible only by boat.

    The spring by the car park opposite Mere Road is an interesting one. Although I'd been to Taupo on many occasions I had never seen this until a couple of years ago. This is strange considering how accessible the spring is. From the end of the car park walk along the lakeside path until you see the 'danger scalding water' sign. The spring comes out just below the path onto the beach, and people have made sand banks in...
