Taupo Red Bike Treasure Trail

Taupo town centre, Taupo town

15 April - 01 May 2022

Take a ride along Taupo's town centre, keep your eyes peeled for 10 red bikes hidden along the way and you could be to win some epic prizes!

Where to start

The Red Bike Treasure Trail begins and ends at the Taupo i-SITE on Tongariro Street. There is plenty of all-day parking on Story Pl, behind the i-SITE.

The trail

The trail is an easy-grade 1 sealed pathway - even tots on training wheels can manage this one. With stunning views over the Waikato River, Taupo Boat Harbour and Lake Taupo, there are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the activity on the waterways. Riverside Park is also the perfect place for a picnic lunch along the way.

We recommend starting and finishing the Red Bike Treasure Trail at the Taupo i-SITE (although there are many access points along the trail).

Keep an eye out for the red bikes hidden along the trail and collect the code letters as you ride!

Starting point Taupo i-SITE, 30 Tongariro Street, Taupo
