Spend time soaking in hot pools that date back hundreds of years. Sheer magic. The geothermal waters continue to attract hot pool devotees due to the high mineral content of the water. The drive to the Hot Pools is through gorse covered hills.
When the gorse was commented as ulgy the manager informed us the gorse is excellent at encouraging bee pollen work as well as protects emerging native plants. The individual pools are varying colour intensities due to the differing mineral content. There are 16 mineral baths each with unique nutrient and temperature characteristics. The pools have been used for centuries for relaxation as well as their therapeutic qualities and healing properties. They are culturally significant and have a rich social, environmental and political history.
The (trusted guardian) kaitiaki have a responsibility to ensure that the springs are maintained and developed so that future generations can enjoy their healing waters.
