The Māori village of Whakarewarewa in Rotorua is built in a thermal area with many mud pools, geysers and hot springs. It has been one of New Zealand's main tourist attractions since the late 19th century, and an important point of contact between Māori and European. These children wait in a hot pool, ready to dive for coins thrown by tourists.
