Destination Great Lake Taupo, Lake Taupo Tourist Information

Lake Taupo tourist information

Lake Taupo, New Zealand

Lake Taupo is catching a wild trout or swimming in a clear lake. It is skiing on a volcano or walking in native bush. Situated right in the heart of the North Island the Lake Taupo region is in the centre of it all. Home to New Zealand's largest fresh water lake, volcanic wonderlands, a World Heritage Park and the famous Huka Falls, Lake Taupo is truly blessed with world-class natural attractions

Visitors come for the scenery, some of the best trout fishing in the world, and action-packed adventure; but what is also unique to this vibrant region are its locals. It's the type of place where the people are genuinely friendly, where "gidday" in the street can lead to an impromptu dinner invitation, where you arrive as a visitor but leave as a friend. You can't buy that kind of welcome.

The Lake Taupo area is also known well for its geothermal wonderlands. It remains the home of many gushing geysers, bubbling mud pools and some of the largest silica terraces in the world. Along with the unique history of both Tangata Whenua (people of the land) and early settlers, whenua (land) and people have many stories to tell.

Our real locals, cultural values, hospitality and inspiring landscape are the regions true gifts. An ideal meeting place for friends, family and travellers. This is where you can learn about our culture, our landscape and best of all our people. Base yourself here and explore the very best of New Zealand.
