Motutara - Sulphur Point, Roturua

Rotorua, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand Motutara - Sulphur Point, Roturua. Motutara means Bird's Island in Māori, so I assume that this little island in Lake Rotorua was already inhabited by many birds when the Lake and Island were discovered by the two Māori Ihenga and his uncle Kahumatamomoe. The full name of Lake Rotorua in Māori is Te Rotorua-nui-a Kahumatamomoe, meaning "the lake of Kahumatamomoe, discovered second" as before arriving at Rotorua they had already discovered Lake Rotoiti or in its full Māori name Te Rotoiti-kite-a-Ihenga, meaning "The small lake discovered by Ihenga", it later turned out the lake was not as small as they first had thought though.
