Blue Springs - Putaruru
On our drive yesterday our last stop was visiting the Blue Springs of Putaruru about 1 hour and 3o minutes from where we live. This place is truly magical - and by the colour of the water you can see why, right?
The water comes from the Mamaku Plateau where the water takes up to 100 years to filter through, and the result is so pure that it produces a lovely blue clear colour.
We were lucky enough to see a few trout swimming here and there in the water. There were signs up specifying no swimming but it was dismaying to see people paddling and floating on the water on blow up tubes.
