Pohutu Geyser is located in Rotorua within the Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley! It is the most reliable geyser on earth putting on a spectacular show for its spectators every hour! The name Pohutu means “Big splash” or “explosion”. This is actually the largest geyser in the whole of New Zealand! It spurts up to 20 times per day and can reach heights of 30 meters!!!

The Lady Knox Geyser is a geyser located in the Waiotapu area of the Taupo Volcanic Zone. It is induced to erupt daily at 10.15am by dropping a surfactant into the opening of the vent. The eruptions can reach up to 20m high and last for one hour depending on the weather. In 1901 the first open prison in New Zealand was established at Waiotapu. It was actually a gang of these prisoners that discovered the geyser. They also found out that the spring could be made to erupt by adding soap when they tried to wash their clothes in the hot water ☺️🌋
