Taupo

Great Cloak of Tia
The resort town of Taupo lies on the banks of Lake Taupo, the largest body of water in the whole of Australasia. Maori culture regards the lake as the beating heart of a fish (that fish being North Island), because of its volcanic activity and location at the island's center. A Taupo holiday naturally offers plenty in the way of lakeside activities, including ample trout fishing and a range of water sports. With its views of the water, surrounding forests and areas of geothermal activity, plus close proximity to ski centers, Taupo draws visitors year-round. Make this your base for exploring the scenery on the many well-maintained hiking and mountain bike routes. Make Taupo central to your New Zealand travel plans using our New Zealand travel planner.
