Locals in the right place at the right time could have the chance to be on TV with popular morning show Breakfast filming in the city tomorrow.

TV One's Breakfast will be featuring live on-air crosses from Rotorua's museum tomorrow morning.

Matt Gibb will be presenting live weather crosses from 6.10am.

Destination Rotorua said it was a great opportunity to showcase the Tudor-style bathhouse building and the beauty of the Government Gardens to a national audience.

Rotorua residents are encouraged to come down to meet the crew, get involved and maybe even get their faces on the television.

But this is not the first time the show has visited Rotorua. In 2014, weatherman Sam Wallace shot six live crosses at popular tourist attraction OGO on Fairy Springs Rd.

The year before, musicians and dance groups from Rotorua were aired live on national television with the show filming at Rotorua Museum.

The local groups were invited to perform live ahead of the New Zealand's Got Talent Rotorua auditions at John Paul College. Mr Wallace introduced all four groups and read the weather during cross-overs.
