Rotorua

Te Rotorua-nui-a-Kahumatamomoe named by Ihenga who was the grandson of Tamatekapua, the captain of the Arawa canoe. Lake Rotorua is the largest lake in the district and the most productive trout fishery in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The lake was formed from the crater of a large volcano in the Taupo Volcanic Zone. The quality of the water in Lake Rotorua also affects Lake Rotoiti as the two lakes are linked by the Ohau Channel.
