I had no idea this place even existed until recently. Know how I found out about it? Instagram! All in the name of work, of course.
Near the Waikato town of Putaruru, the Blue Spring is so ridiculously pure it supplies the majority of New Zealand’s bottled water. Photos don’t do the blue, clear water justice.
This was a quick stop for us on the way to Taupo so we parked at the Leslie Rd carpark to make it a 10 minute walk to the stream. (There’s another track from Whites Rd to the downstream part, which apparently takes 90 minutes to walk.)
I’ll have to check that place out, thanks. 🙂
NZ also has the clearest spring water in the world! This is also a neat place: http://www.newzealand.com/int/article/crystal-clear-te-waikoropupu-springs/
Gorgeous! I wouldn’t necessarily want to drink out of that spring, but I’ll take your word for it that it tastes as good as it looks… 😉
=O So pretty! Our autumn is all… cold and NOT green. ^__^;
Next time I am headed that way, I will have to check it out. Your photos are really lovely.
I want to go there so badly.
