Spa Thermal Park

Spa Thermal Park is home of the famous Otumuheke Stream hot pools. From here, you can also explore the Huka scenic walking trails and the Rotary Ride mountain bike trail.

Otumuheke Stream

Soak under a waterfall or in the natural rock pools whilst taking in the stunning views of the deep green, crystal-clear waters of the mighty Waikato River, New Zealand’s longest river.

Adjacent to Otumuheke Stream is the start of the Huka Trail which leads to Huka Falls, New Zealand’s most visited natural attraction. The trail follows the banks of the Waikato River, showcasing spectacular scenery whilst taking hikers through areas of native bush before arriving at the Falls. This walk will take two hours return for those of average fitness and is the perfect way to discover some of the most beautiful natural surroundings of the area.
