Hamurana is famous for its beautiful crystal clear fresh water springs, that emanate from the ground and flows downstream into Lake Rotorua.

The surrounding wildlife sanctuary plays host to many species of birds including black teal, scaup, herons and the endangered dabchick.

This is a nice, family orientated area with calming picnic spots in a picturesque setting.
