Fun for all ages.

Let your hair down

Drench yourself in waterfalls, float around the lazy river, dive down the tuatara slide and watch out for the dumping bucket! Our leisure area will have you laughing and smiling like a toddler.


Freshwater Pool

Perch yourself on one of our sun loungers and watch the fun, drift calmly around the lazy river or refresh yourself with a few laps. Down time has never felt this good.

The resort style access of our freshwater lap pool makes it easily accessible, and at a comfortable 28 degrees, diving in is a great refresher between our hotter thermal pools.

Surrounded by sun loungers, there are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the action. You'll see kids of all ages practice their diving, while others splash about honing their handstands.

Or get in a little exercise with our roped off lanes, great for a few laps to reawaken the body.

The lazy river is always a fun focal point.  Float about blissfully or race the kids around and around, laughing as you try to beat the current.

A great way to tire the kids out!

The kids will love the cave hidden behind the waterfall and the popular tuatara slide.

Watch them race through the shallows as you enjoy sprawling on the grassy area or relaxing at a picnic table.

Watch out for the dumping bucket high above! A favourite game is dragging unsuspecting parents underneath it so they are soaked by the sporadic cascades of warm water… you have been warned!

The water is warm and you'll find plenty of adults relaxing in the shallows as they keep a close eye on the kids.

Our Aquaplay area is a water wonderland for young children.

Let them race down the side by side waterslides, dip between the water fountains spraying in every direction, play with the water toys, and whoosh down the mini hydro-slide.

The area is surrounded by a cushioned landing mat to keep your little ones safe in the midst of their excitement.

A large grassy picnic area spreads out alongside the playground. Equipped with ample sun loungers, it’s a great place to sit and relax while keeping an eye on the little ones playing.
