Rotorua is in a region that is still volcanically active & the landscape as seen today has been largely shaped by swift, violent & cataclysmic volcanic forces. Underground heat & faults in the rock from volcanic activity, combined with water, allow the water, mud & steam access to the surface. Thus the landscape continues to be formed as dynamically as in the past.
