Gosh that looks so nice and lush.Cool that you are allowed to go swimming in it.I bet it was cold though.
Hi there, it was absolutely beautiful. People were swimming all the way along. It is quite fast moving in parts. It is freezing - 11 degrees celcius all year round. The water takes 50 - 100 years to filter up, which is why it is so clear; about 70% of NZ's bottled water comes from the spring.
It's so clear and green. Looks and sounds a great place to swim.
