    Default Kerosene Creek - Hot Springs at their best

    Got the hang of these photo thingys now....watch out all!

    We had a great time at Kerosene Creek - just south of Taupo, down a dirt road and it was free. No changing rooms, just hide behind a tree. The gravel at the bottom of the waterfall was so hot you couldn't stand on it.



    The girls loved it, and when we finished up the kettle went on in the campervan . Fantastic! :)

    For those of you who are interested its on the left about half an hour south of Taupo, its just a sign for Kerosene Creek Road - about 5Km down there and there is a wee car park on your right - follow the track down to a small pool then further on for the waterfall.

    Cheers

    Nick

    Wow! What a fab place. Weird name ... Kerosene Creek! It is great that these places exist off the tourist trail.

    At last! >:( Been trying to reply for ages but something amiss either with the forum or my Internet connection. Kept getting Network Error.

    Anyway, piccies.....Yay!!!

    Great pic, Nick. Looks like the kids had fun big time. Nothing quite like getting back to nature. You don't need artificial props when you've got places like this to play around in.

    Err dawn.........I dont think the piccy of me jumping off the waterfall would get past the censors!

    Yeah we had a great time, we swam, we chilled and we had a hotwater massage under the waterfall..............

    We ave heard that there is something similar down from Nelson before you get to Hanmer springs.........but its a very closley guarded secret. There are a couple of guys at work that I will interogate at the Christmas party when they have had too much drink!

    Speaking as a Moderator, I have no problems with you posting pics of your manly bod leaping off the waterfall. ? Taffy's a man of the world so I'm sure he wouldn't mind either. ?

    You've got no excuse now. ? ?

    It looks like a great location. I love hot springs in natural settings, but it's been a while.

    Yes, show us some beefcake! Take it off, baby ;)
