Taupo is a popular tourist resort town, nestled on the banks of Lake Taupo, New Zealand's largest lake and the largest freshwater lake in Australasia. Taupo activities include many water bound activites such as world class fishing, boating, whitewater rafting and jet boating. If you prefer more land based activities there's plenty of walks, biking tracks, golf, geothermal attractions and hot pools. more

The powerful beauty of the volcanic landscape that surrounds Taupo provides a dramatic backdrop to everything you do here and Mt Doom from the Lord of The Rings trilogy features in the background to Taupo.

Highlights around Taupo include the Tongariro National Park, the Orakei Korako Geyserland, the mighty Waikato River, Turangi (the North Island's trout fishing capital) and the amazing Huka Falls.
