Volcanic Kerosene Creek

While we were in Rotorua last week B took me to this spot called Kerosene Creek, he use to live in the city and Taupo many years ago. It's like a watering hole/swimming spot off the beaten track that isn't well known. When we were there we only saw a mum with her children and a couple with their dog enjoying the hot geothermal water. There is geothermal activity all over Taupo and Rotorua so this is probably one of many natural heated streams. We didn't have our swimming stuff with us so we just walked the track. Enjoy the photos.

  2. Ohhhh... count me in! It´s funny. In Australia, Northern Territory, it´s hot, yet I looooved the hot springs and could stay in there forever. As many (too many) people did. Isn´t that weird? I understand in cold Japan but in hot weather enjoying hot springs?! LOL.
