Rotorua was discovered in the 14th century and its founder was a Maori explorer named Ihenga. Early settlers made great use of this thermal area’s boiling water. It was a natural resource used in cooking and warmth for housing. Today, Rotorua is an exciting city, with an immense portrayal of history, tradition and culture. It has many popular tourist attractions.
