Hi, I'm the owner of Rotorua Farm Stay and over the years I have found that guests have really enjoyed meeting our friendly animals and a tour about the picturesque farm land and gardens of the beautiful Ngakuru countryside. I would love to share this fun experience with more travellers and share a piece of paradise with visitors to Rotorua. The farm animals are people friendly and you can get up close and personal with a wide range or animals and have a unique, authentic country experience that most visitors don't get to experience. I am happy to show you around and chat to you about the country lifestyle and introduce you to the stunning volcanic landscapes that surround you. The tour is child-friendly and welcome family groups. My family has a history of farming in the Waikite Valley area and was involved in the development of it
We'll take photos for you and provide you with farm boots, umbrellas and riding gear. We will also provide you with animal…
