The climate of Rotorua (New Zealand)
Rotorua is the most popular holiday destination of the North Island. Rotorua is located in the middle of a volcanic area with simmering mud pools, blowing geysers, hot water wells, steaming rocks and hydrothermal lakes that are said to have a healing effect because of the release of volcanic gasses. The second large attraction in this area is the Maori culture which still has its authentic character. Rotorua has a moderate sea climate with four distinct seasons. The nearby volcanoes make for warm winds so it seems temperatures are a little higher than they actually are. January, February and March are the warmest months; July and August are the coldest. Winds are a little less strong than in the rest of New Zealand.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period.
