When to fly to Rotorua

Most travellers visit the area in the summer (December to February) or autumn (March to May) months. During this time the weather is fine and clear. The winter months (June to August) are cool. While it rains throughout the year, the region gets more rain during winter. A number of festivals are held in Rotorua each year and it is a great idea to time your visits to take advantage of these festivities and lifestyle events. The Bike Festival, Home and Garden Show and the Blue Baths Annual Wedding and Special Events Expo are some great options to explore.

The winter months of June, July and August are the low season in the area when the weather is cooler and there is more rain. Special offers on airfare, hotel and spa packages are generally available during these months, though some high season specials may run for a brief time, before the high season begins. Keep an eye out for these very brief deals.
