Kōrero: Volcanic Plateau region

Fenton Street, Rotorua

Fenton Street, Rotorua

Where once a resort like Rotorua was reached by train, and was mostly the preserve of the affluent, the spread of car ownership and improved roads brought increasing numbers of middle-income holidaymakers. They stayed in one of the many motels lining Fenton Street – seen here probably in the 1980s.
