Craters of the Moon is a classic lunar fantasy that comes to life on SH5. The boardwalk is easily navigativable and the slightly warped nature of the timber framing points to the constant  geothermal activity very near the surface. There are excellent plaques describing the stunted vegetation that has adapted to the harsh conditions. The lack of trees or bushes of any height with vents of steam, boiling mud pools and streaks of mineralised coloured rock create a place where imagination is given a boost. is part of the three days in Taupo holiday ideas for families, check here for more inspiration what to do with kids.
