While many travelers consider the summer months to be the prime traveling season, there are thousands and thousands of travelers who love to take to their campervan hire australia journeys when the weather is cooler. There are many activities that can be enjoyed in the winter that just can’t be experienced in the summer, and many areas that are known to be at their best when the weather is cold. One of these locations is Rotorua, which is known to be one of the most culturally significant regions in the entire country where you can get a good taste of the Maori culture. Plus there are many stunning sites and activities that make this one of the most visited regions for campervan travelers, many of them in the winter. There are so many things to do and see in this region that you will want to complete your own research, but here are some of the top attractions.

 

Mokoia Island

 

If you’re looking to get to know the native Maori culture and learn of their traditions and history, then you should look into taking a trip to Mokoia Island. Located in the expanse of Lake Rotorua, this island is like a trip back in time. Here you will learn about the native culture, plus be offered the opportunity to perform some of the native traditions on your own. New Zealand has an incredibly rich native history, and this island is the best place to learn all about it and to immerse yourself in the culture.

 

This island is especially gorgeous in the winter where you can see vast water vistas spreading out in all directions. There’s nothing like learning about the native culture while within these vast and epic surroundings, and thinking back to the times these original inhabitants lived in and worshipped the land. It just doesn’t get any better than this for winter traveling in Australia with its combination of scenic majesty and cultural significance.

 

Visit The Hot Springs

 

The Rotorua region has a number of geothermal hot springs that are a joy to soak in during the winters. In a country full of hot springs, this is one of the most famous, boasting more than a dozen different springs such as Hanmer Springs on the South Island which has dozens of springs feeding off from it. For those on skiing journeys, there is really nothing more refreshing than a dip in one of these hot springs after a long day on the slopes in order to warm up and soothe those sore muscles. In the midst of a long campervan hire Australia journey, it just doesn’t get any more relaxing and refreshing than this.

 

The amazing thing about Geothermal waters is that they are proven to be good for your health as well. The waters are full of essential minerals that are good for the skin, the joints, and the muscles. The steam opens up your pores and clears your sinuses. Overall it is a healthful, relaxing experience. If you’ve never experienced it, then make sure to take a dip while you’re in the area.

 

Rotorua Town

 

When it comes to experiencing the Maori culture, there is nowhere else this legendary city which has long been a messa for travelers. With its variety of ancient villages, Maori tourist attractions, and geothermal parks, this is the heart of the region and it really comes alive during the winter months with hundreds of travelers flooding in to take advantage of the hot springs and the skiing in the nearby region. There are a number of camps in the surrounding area that are fully RV friendly, giving you the opportunity to stay in a comfortable, well-maintained park and utilize the days to explore this amazing region.

 

There are a great many cultural centers and museums in and around the town that will give you a great overall picture of both the Maori culture and the history of the region right on up to the present. Check out the many exhibits, information centers, and museums that feature a constantly rotating selection of fine native arts that span an impressive range of styles and types. You won’t get an opportunity like this to learn about the ancient culture again, so make sure to take advantage of it while you are here.

 

Winter travel has its own set of pleasures and advantages that just can’t be had in the summer months. Rotorua remains one of the top destinations for winter travelers due to its abundance of native culture, its majestic scenery, its skiing and other winter sports, and the lively winter nature of the main town and surrounding area. If this is your first campervan hire Australia journey, then make sure to consider making in Rotorua. You won’t regret it.
