Here's a few Ideas

This Island in the middle of lake Rotorua, steeped in culture and history is both an iconic and historic landmark of Rotorua dating back to a time around 1350 AD. Fringed with pohutukawa trees, a sanctuary to many of NZís endangered wildlife and crowned with natural bush, Mokoia has a spiritual sense that can only be experienced the moment you set foot there.
