Queens Birthday Weekend in Rotorua

Queens Birthday Weekend in Rotorua

The ThermaTech 3D Rotorua Multi Sports Festival is on again this year, taking place on the Sunday on the Blue Lake (Lake Tikitapu) and the Redwoods Forest.

There is something for everyone to take part in, offering 10 competitive and fun events that include running, walking, kayaking and mountain biking making up 120 different entry options, You don’t need to be in first place to win a prize with a huge prize pool including 139 performance prizes, 42 medals, $6,000 cash vouchers and over $75,000 in giveaways and spot prizes.

If Enduro events aren't really your thing, don’t worry as there are still plenty of other great activities and attractions in Rotorua which do not require months of committed training.

Skyline Rotorua has always been a popular destination for visitors and locals alike and now it is even better with the addition of their latest activity the Zoom Zipline.

There are two ziplines side by side which allow you to race your friends and family at super speeds 380 meters down mount Ngongotaha.

Or get away from the crowds and experience the number one rated activity in town - Rotorua Canopy Tours. This is an amazing 3 hour eco-adventure you will never forget. The tour takes you high above the canopy of native New Zealand forest on 10 treetop platforms, 6 ziplines and 2 swing bridges. Rotorua Canopy Tours is a great all weather activity (especially great in the rain), it is suitable for all ages and is a perfect activity for the entire family. This is a very popular activity so bookings are essential - visit the Rotorua Canopy Tours website to Book Online.

Once you have tired yourself out zipping around Rotorua, head down to Eat Street. Once just a grouping of restaurants at the lake end of Tutanekai St, the aptly named part of town has recently been transformed into a contemporary dining destination. Eat Street is home to a number of award winning restaurants and bars offering everything from Italian cuisine to ice creams and everything inbetween.

If you are looking for centrally located accommodation or advice on any other Rotorua activities over the long weekend do not hesitate to contact Lance and Yvonne at the Golden Glow Motel, they will be more than happy to help.


Most importantly, wherever you may be for the long weekend, remember to travel safely drive to the conditions.
