Things to see & do in Taupo

What makes the Taupo region so special? It’s harder to know where to stop than where to start. Spectacular natural landscapes unlike those found anywhere else in the world, including crystal-clear lakes and unique geothermal hot-spots. 

A huge range of family attractions for adults and kids, adventure and adrenaline activities, as well as peaceful nature-based experiences that will get you back in touch with the real world. A rich cultural history and locals who love to share it with visitors. And beautiful places to stay that range from lakeside camping grounds and award-winning bed and breakfasts to luxury lodges and hotels. All this means there’s never a shortage of things to do in Taupo… making it one of the best holiday destinations in New Zealand.
