The Blue Pool

More commonly referred to as the bluey because of its blue colours and in former times was used as a bathing pool. This large Pool collects outflows from the geysers. It is very alkaline and usually 30-40°C with a subterranean drainage into the Puarenga stream. Small mounds along the Northern and Western sides are the sinter - encrusted stumps of manuka trees (Leptospermum sp.) which once grew here.
