OK you're in Rotorua and there's this lake with a nice path and you need some exercise. Go for it. It won't offend your nostrils too much but this IS a geothermal zone and the sulphur odour is part of the environment.

We took a pleasant walk along the Lake close the Roturua township. It was a flat easy walk along a path through trees and a small wooden bridge toward the museum and rose garden area. Nice morning walk with tame Geese running up to us to see if we had anything for them and swans wading on the Lake.

After walking the Ohinemutu and passing the beautiful Faith Church, I walked along the lake and saw ducks in the water with their beaks down, There were benches, boats and plenty of people here, we continued walking for half an hour round the banks of lake, passing the Maori boat on the way.

Went on the Cessna trip out to White Island - fantastic! The lake is huge - there are boat trips and you can walk all round - it is close to the town and easy to get to.
