Short hop to Wai-o-Tapu, sitting gurgling on the top of one of the world’s biggest volcanoes. The largest eruption in the last million years was here. Not today though, so photos are of more prosaic geothermal pools and gurglings, with a pervasive H2S background.

Day started with a fantastic cafe breakfast. Back of beyond location and huge healthy choices. Set us up nicely so the digesting sounds were muffled by the mud pools. Before lunch in Taupo, which is preparing for this weekend’s Iron Man event (shame, missed entering), the voracity of the waterfalls (200000litres per minute) draining the crater are hard to take in.


Wifi here is both sporadic and limited amount for free. So come back for updates as photos and links may get added as and when.
