A treat not to be missed – gorgeous hot and cold springs set amid 364 hectares of rain forest. Rare in the world of hot springs, the Morere Springs produce 250,000 litres a day of hot ancient sea water. Known for its therapeutic values, the water is piped to a series of public and private hot pools. It is definitely worth taking a walk on any of the various walks in the Morere Scenic Reserve, from 10-minute walks up to three hours. Especially famous for its nikau palms, the dense virgin rain forest is home to a wide range of native birds.
Check out why Stuff's Brook Sabin rates Morere Hot Springs "the best hot spring escape you have never heard of".
