Summer has been great, autumn in the air!

Summer has been great, autumn in the air!

Kiwi Paka has had a great summer. We have loved the travellers and groups rolling into town.

Tri New Zealand came for a training camp in February and made us all feel it was time to get on our bikes. They loved the Rotorua redwoods and spend lots of time cycling round Lake Rotorua and improving their swimming skills in the Aquatic Centre.

Australearn American students stayed in February also.  They go to University in NZ for a semistar.

After five nights at KiwiPaka they had a taste of our culture and people! Each team spend a day on a community based project.

One group painted and cleaned the paths at Whakarewarewa.  Another group marshalled at the Mayoral Bike Ride, and reading and maths at Rotorua Boys High School.  It was great for them to meet each other and for us to meet them.

New Zealand Womens Rugby is in for a training camp in April. We are looking forward to that.

The mountain biking has been superburb, even on the hot summer days it is still cool on the single track.  Seven blokes from Melbourne came and rode for five days. Loving every day 100% better than an office.  I spotted them enjoying a shot of coffee by the Outdoorsman Headquarters.

The last few mornings have been a bit fresher autumn in the air but the days are still really hot and sunny! Compulsory outdoor time to enjoy all the things Rotorua has on offer.

Take some time out and spend a night or ten!
