Rotorua - New Zealand



The Champagne Pool is one of the star attractions at Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, and the most famous hot spring in New Zealand. Champagne Pool fills a crater formed some 700 years ago. Champagne coloured waters percolate up from underground full of carbon dioxide which forms bubbles near the surface where the water temperature is around 100 deg c. At the edges of the pools the silica is lined with bright orange from antimony rich deposits that solidify out of the cooler water. Mercury, thallium, gold and silver are also deposited in the rocks.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay in Rotorua just this weekend.
