From beautiful lakes, hiking trails and hot springs to the classy restaurants and fun bars of Eat Streat, Rotorua has got to be one of the most exciting places to visit in NZ. I'm Sean Russell, Duck Driver and Rotorua local, and my blogs are all about the things I love about living here and the places I've explored myself. There's something really cool about inspiring others to get out and enjoy the secret places that make Rotorua so special! Have a read, enjoy, and I hope to see you out on the lake (or walking the Tarawera Trail, or mountain biking in the Redwoods!)
