Stinks of sulpher but is lovely and hot with bubbles springing from the bottom (or were they from my OH's bottom?!!!! ). Would recommend anyone to visit if you're in the Taupo region.

You're welcome. The views were amazing, have lots more pics of that and the surrounding area. I can't believe you didn't go on it, its a fantastic ride, just didn't last long enough. My OH did the bungy but I couldn't pluck up the courage, maybe next time?
