Hamurana Springs, Rotorua Overview

Located to the North-East of Lake Rotorua are the beautiful and crystal clear, Hamurana Springs appears amidst century-old redwood trees. These freshwater springs are a part of the Ngati Rangiwewehi tribe and the journey till here is a short one through the groves alongside quiet and mesmerising views. Hamurana Springs flows into the Hamurana Springs Reserve as a stream and later joins the Lake Rotorua. The Hamurana Springs are surrounded by rocky structures and volcanic springs such as the one near Hangarua Spring.

Hamurana Springs has been described as a ‘Taonga’, a treasure by the Ngati Rangiwewehi locals and along with the Department of Conservation, the locals, have now joined hands to bring its ‘former glory’ back through conservation work with the help of the Hamurana Springs Incorporated Society (HSIS). An interesting fact regarding these springs is that the water takes about 70 years to make its way through the underground aquifers of Mamaku Plateau to resurface again in the spring. The Hangarua Spring is the biggest of all the springs and a bit further along the walkway here is the Dancing Sands Spring.
