|District||Far North District|
It is the location of hot water springs that reputedly have therapeutic properties for those who bathe in teir waters, and is the source of the steam used at the Ngawha geothermal field's power station. The nearby Northland Region Corrections Facility is the only prison in Northland.
Entry to the hot water springs cost $4 per adult. Facilities are very basic, there are no showers, only basic changing facilities; and it is recommended that you bring footwear. The pools themselves vary in temperature and so give a wide range of hot springs from the rather cool 32'c to the extremely hot "Favourite" and "Doctor".
The nearby Ginns Ngawha Spa has been closed since 2015.
