Developing a World-Class Lakefront

Rotorua’s lakefront is steeped in the history of Te Arawa and today forms the city’s civic soul.

As part of the Council’s Vision 2030 – The Rotorua Way, and thanks to funding from Government’s Provincial Growth Fund, the lakefront will be developed into a modern and fresh area that will be a regular destination for both locals and manuhiri (visitors).

The development of the Rotorua Lakefront will bind the lake with the land, the past with the present and the physical with the unseen. It will pay tribute to our collective histories and honour the intrinsic beauty of our place – Rotorua-nui-a-Kahumatamomoe.
