April Fools!!

Hope you enjoyed our April Fools joke yesterday announcing that Hugh Hefner was going to convert a wing of the Rotorua Museum into his new holiday mansion.

While that story was a joke, the fact that the unique Rotorua smell helps with male erectile function is in fact true. Scientists from Italy's University of Naples have discovered a link between hydrogen sulphide - the gas that gives Rotorua its distinctive smell - and male sexual arousal.

What more motivation do you need to visit Rotorua?

Have a great day.
