What people are saying:

Rotorua Redwood Forest Park, located on the south side of Lake Rotorua, covers an area of 55,000 square meters. It was opened to tourists in 1995. Towering ancient trees, shavings and leaves, unique landscapes, and fresh air in the park are must-see spots for visiting Rotorua. I visited the park and left the most impressive 3 attractions. 1. "Seven Fairies" mother and child tree. A giant tree that is uprooted and lying on the ground, on its trunk, grows tenaciously with seven big trees of different thicknesses and straight upwards. They are slim and close together, like seven descending fairies. The most tourists in the park must be the "seven fairies". 2. A giant tree with a diameter of 2.2 meters. Old trees in the park have a diameter at breast height of more than 40 cm. The thickest giant tree with a diameter at breast height of 2.2 meters and a bust of nearly 7 meters requires 4 to 5 big men to hold it together. 3. The canopy trail. Not far from the entrance of the park, a 553-meter long "canopy trail" is suspended in the air. The trail is made up of 22 viewing platforms built between 22 big trees and 23 suspension bridges with a height of 6-12 meters. It is a different kind of enjoyment to stroll on it and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the forest from a different perspective. Tips: Old trees in the park are more than 50 meters high. You must use the "panoramic vertical shooting" mode of photography to take a complete photo of people and trees.

    Walk high in the trees

    Very good experience and we are looking forward to doing the night walk as well. Nice open trails in the forest for long walks.

    Lovely tree walk

    This is such a lovely tree walk. We did it twice with our preschoolers and they loved it. It is amazing to think this is tucked away so close to the city.

    Not exactly exciting but a Rotorua "must do" experience.

    The treetops walkway in suspended bridges and tree platforms in the redwood forest. It is beautifully built and very safe. If you buy a ticket you can both in the day and at night when the walkways ar...
