Rotorua Family Attractions

Family Attractions in Rotorua are everywhere - it's a very child-friendly city. From educational fun, to nature, wildlife and sport, there's not much they haven't thought of here. Get active, and join the kids for a fun day out.  

Rotorua Family Attractions can be high or low octane, depending on what the children will let you get away with. You can get down and dirty in the adventure forest between Tauranga and Rotorua, with everything from tree swings to zipwires. Why not check out one of the river cruises or check out the many nature and wildlife parks in the area, where you can get close to kiwi, parrots, and other indigenous creatures. Wildlife attractions include Rainbow Springs and Paradise Valley. There's also a working sheep farm up in Ngongotaha, that lets children pet the animals.   Hire some bikes and go cycling around the lake, or go swimming in one of the many natural pools. Skyline Rotorua is great for all the family, with a cable car, luge and other rides and activities. Government Gardens has some lovely park areas.   Many Rotorua Attractions are centred around the area's geothermal and Maori history, the reason most people come here.
