Staying true to Roturua’s endless collection of geothermal locations, Kerosene Creek is a lovely destination that attracts locals and tourists alike all around the year. After all, who doesn’t like to take a dip in naturally-heated warm pool of water and rinse off their week’s stress from the body and the mind.
Located 35 minutes south of the main city of Rotorua, Kerosene Creek is a great location to drive to with your friends and family on a weekend you have nothing else to do. Hot water from an underground spring bubbles away and makes it away to surface to mingle with the cool water of the creek, thus creating a lovely lukewarm water in the stream - perfect for bathing.
Other than being free of cost, the best part about Kerosene Creek is the completely natural setting it is situated in. Bushes grow into the stream from the two banks, branches of high trees bend and almost touch the water surface, as the stream cascades down a small, 2 metres natural waterfall.
