Lake Taupo - A Crater as Big as an Inland Sea
Just about everywhere you look in the Lake Taupo region, you'll see a volcano. The most serene is Lake Taupo itself, created by an eruption so big the sun went hazy in China.
Lake Taupo is the largest fresh water lake in Australasia with water so clean a few zillion trout call it home. Taupo Lake is 616 square kilometres—that's about the same size as Singapore!
Water activities take place in the lake all year round.
There are 47 rivers and streams feeding into Lake Taupo, and just one outlet—the Waikato River, New Zealand's longest river.
