Medicine Lake

Medicine Lake

This is the people’s Medicine Lake. Its water has been used for hundreds of years for all manner of aches and pains particularly for skin diseases and arthritis.
This is one area where visitors can put their hands in the water to see first hand, how warm and soft the water is.

The Rotorua Maori and staff in Hells Gate swim in the lake, but it is a little dangerous for visitors to do so due to the changing nature of the lake.

You can however enjoy an invigorating thermal mud bath or spa in either the Wai Ora Spa Facility or Hells Gate Spa Facility!

You look at the hot pools in this area and throughout the thermal park the pools are physically very close to each other but have different temperatures and colours. Lydia Doe
