Taupo is nestled at the edge of Australasia’s largest lake. Surrounded by beautiful forests, volcanic mountains, it is a hub for events and activities year round.
The popular tourist town provides a base for visitors who love to fish for trout, ski Mount Ruapehu and explore the local geothermal phenomena. Popular Taupo experiences include Huka Falls, geothermal walks, a prawn farm, and lake cruises.
The Taupo region is home to world-class mountain biking and cycling tracks and suited for all abilities.
Taupo’s Saturday Market has become a not-to-be missed event. Held every Saturday from 10am – 1pm at the Riverside Park on Redoubt Street, it’s a mecca for fresh produce, NZ art and crafts, coffee and much more.
