Revitalise your Mind, Body and Soul Wairakei - a Long History of Healing.

Long History of Healing

The healing and therapeutic waters of Wairakei have long been used by Maori for healing and bathing and in recent times by affluent noble men and women who traveled from afar to ‘take of the waters’.
