Pōhutu and Te Tohu Geysir - Rotoroua New Zealand

Both Geysirs are located at Te Puia, the Centre for New Zealand's Māori Culture and Geothermal Wonders in Rotorua.

Pōhutu is the largest active geyser in the southern hemisphere. She erupts once or twice every hour and sometimes reaches heights of 30 metres.
Pōhutu means ‘constant splashing’ in Māori.

Te Tohu is called an ‘indicator’ geyser – it usually erupts just before Pōhutu, it’s neighbour. Te Tohu first sprang to life in 1886 following the eruption of Mount Tarawera. It has played almost continuously since 1992 – erupting to heights of up to 7 metres
