Nature has bestowed us with views that simply take our breath away and one such view is that of the Blue spring in New Zealand. The place is so exceptionally beautiful that it drives you away from anything that could be considered less than perfect. The setting is such that the place has natural spring which is astonishing blue in colour, extremely transparent to let you see the bottom of the lake and surrounded by greenery that could not be compared to anything but heavenly. Within such a setting you are bound to get much closer to nature and to yourself too.

  • This whole area is really lovely. It's an easy hike from the car park, about a 20 minute walk, through grassy hills and trees to the spring. Once you reach the bridge that goes over the spring, a combination of trails and raised walkways will take you along this river of clear water. For the best photos try to go when the sun is high.

  • Great place for a nature walk. A little strenuous for the not-so-fit because of incline and stairs. It could be made better with a few more seating or picnic areas. Marker posts are a good idea but should be clearly marked for distances. Overall a good day out though.

  • Been there a couple times now. It's always a beautiful stop along the way to Rotorua from Auckland. The water is so clear! The colours of the spring are very bright and distinctive. It's a perfect spot for some pictures and a stretch!! There isn't that much to do there other than walking and taking photos. There aren't any cafes for a quite break.

  • Amazing place to visit with family or friends. What the rest of the world thinks our rivers look like! Accessible track that is easy to walk.

  • This is an amazing clear water spring that you can see the bottom of the river stream. From the Leslie road car park entrance, a short walk would arrive the blue spring. Definitely a great quick stop, travelling between Auckland / Hamilton to Rotorua. Keep it clean and preserver such a nature beauty.
