Discover Fernland Spa
Just 10 minutes by car from the Tauranga CBD is Fernland Spa thermal mineral springs and campground. Tucked down in the valley and surrounded by native ferns, the thermal hot pools are a great place for the whole family. You can choose to swim in the main pool, or hire an indoor private pool (best to call ahead and book these ones). A soak at Fernland Spa is total bliss!
