Things to do when visiting Rotorua with children

Posted by on

Rotorua is one of New Zealand's TOP tourist destinations with many attractions to keep you and your 'little ones' endlessly entertained. From the land to the lakes and from the earth to the sky, there is something here for everyone. But what if you are only here for a night or two? Or here with the kids? How do you decide what to do?

Luckily we have put together a short list of some of our TOP picks. Check them out below.


In the heart of 350acres of lush farmland, yet only 10 minutes from Rotorua's City Centre, you'll find New Zealand's Agrodome. The Farm Tour is absolutely perfect for children and adults of all ages. With such a wide variety of fun things to see and do out at the Agrodome, it's safe to bet that you and the children will love it.

Rotorua Duck Tours

"You haven't seen Rotorua until you've seen it on a Duck!"

Rotorua Duck Tours is the best way to see and learn about Rotorua by land and water. There are 18 lakes in the Rotorua area surrounded by native New Zealand bush, the most memorable way to see it is by Duck. Jump on board the Duck.. Part car, part boat! Nothing really beats driving straight from the road into the lakes!

Flipout Rotorua

One of Rotorua's newest attraction have arrived and it's amazing! Flip out Rotorua, fun for the whole family! Flipout is a great way to keep the kids endlessly entertained and ready for a BIG night sleep afterwards (hopefully)! The best thing about Flipout is it's perfect for us Adults too! Get a fun work out in while the kids bounce their hearts away. 

Paradise Valley Wildlife Park

Paradise Valley is one of our favourite places to go with the kids. Lions, Trout Pools, Farm Animals, Native Birds.. This place almost has it all! If you come at the right time of year they have little baby lion cubs that you can pat, play with and take a photo with- all under the supervision of their expertly trained staff. Lion feeding is at 2pm daily and we highly recommend watching this... it's awesome!

Amazeme Rotorua

Amazeme is amazing! Not only is there 1.4km of winding hedge to get lost in, there are animals, games and even a BBQ for the whole family to enjoy. Take a seat parents and let the kids go wild! The first time we went out for a visit the Manager made it to the centre in great time while the rest of us raced to the centre (LOL)! Great fun and a great workout for Children and Adults of all ages. An outing with a picnic lunch on a warm day, sounds like the perfect day out to us!


"The accommodations are top of the line, with a heated swimming pool, excellent showers, shiny toilets and perfectly beautiful grass all over. The staff was welcoming and helpful and because it's located where it is, the night sky is amazing when the sky is clear."
