I'm spending a day in Rotorua and am trying to make the most of it. My bus arrives at 12PM and I have the Maori and Hangi dinner at 6PM. I'm trying to find something to do in between.
Is it possible to visit the Waimangu Volcanic Valley in between? It looks to be a 30 minutes drive from my hostel and the valley closes at 5PM so I should be back in time for the Hangi. Would a taxi be feasible/cheap enough to take me there or is there another way? How long would the public bus take?
if this isn't feasible, any other recommendations? I'll be missing the geysers at 10AM and I'm interested in scenery.
