Great advice was given by Nathan (Essendon Supporter/Aussie) who provided us with a must do list whilst we were in Rotarua which we did and we were not disappointed!

It is set in a very large historical building, with plenty of information available for tourists. You can book tours here and there are toilets and showers available to use. They also have souvenirs to purchase.

Trip Advisor won't allow me to put their email address in this reply. It is on the Rotorua i-site website. I Have you been in to Palmerston North i-site? They do have some information about other ares there too.

Most hotels or motels let your store luggage if your arrive early. Just ask them and they should let you know.
