Soothe travel tensions away with a dip in one of the natural hot springs dotted around Auckland and its surrounding areas. Choose from a range of thermal, mineral, treated hot spas, springs and pools. Moreover, there are hot pools to suit specific needs and purposes. On one end of the spectrum, there is Waiwera, filled with wild water slides and wave pools, perfect for a fun-filled family day out. Those seeking a more grown-up soak will find a secluded private venue in Parakai with its own landscaped gardens, thermal rock pool and waterfall.
