Our last trip of 2013 a thermal park in a hidden valley, not that it wasn’t well signposted or anything and only about 30 minutes drive away, but there was a short trip across the lake to get there.
It rained a bit while we were there and Maddison has got to the point where if you’ve seen one thermal park you’ve seen them all! Steamed up glasses were another problem but we got over it. This thermal park had a cave and mud pools as well to distinguish it from the other 2 Maddison has visited. We finished the day with fish and chips in Taupo hence the photo of the grate.
