For a change of pace, The Orchard, with its lovely lakeside location, presents a wonderful opportunity for staging unique weddings & corporate events. In an area of pristine bushland, a place has been set aside for a marquee. It of course comes with the Blue Baths team, at your service! The Department of Conservation reserve contains walking tracks and many recreational and cultural sites. The devastating eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886 completely reshaped this landscape and lifted the level of the lake by 12 m.
Nearby Tarawera landing is the departure point for scenic boat tours, and traditional Maori paintings of archaeological significance, decorate the rock walls close by. The location of this enchanting and somewhat spiritual setting is just 8 km from Rotorua via Tarawera Road, off Te Ngae Road.
