Ngongotaha suburb has a charming village atmosphere. It is free of sulphur smells and there are many attractions close by: Agrodome, Zorb, Agrojet, Rainbow Springs, Kiwi Encounter, Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust, Trout Hatchery, Gondolas and the Luge are all within 6km of Nicara Lodge, your ideal choice for a luxury stay.
Ngongotaha, with its hanging baskets, art works and the ability to walk the banks of the Ngongotaha stream or along the Lakeside Reserve, is only 9km (5 miles) from Rotorua City Centre.
Within the area there are four of the major trout streams in the region - Hamurana, Awahou, Waiteti and Ngongotaha. The Trout Hatchery on Mt Ngongotaha is the Eastern Region Headquarters of Fish & Game New Zealand and has high educational value. One of the loveliest walks is through the redwoods, along the Hamurana stream to the spring. The water is crystal clear & many trout are visible in the stream - a must for everyone.
It provides information about the Trout release scheme within the region, and the way trout are reared prior to release. Why not stay with us near the quiet village of Ngongotaha while still enjoying the proximity to Rotorua?
