Places to Shop, Eat and Drink in Taupo

The Great Lake Taupo region, especially Taupo town centre, is a haven for boutique shopping. With free parking, pedestrian-friendly streets and no cluttered malls to navigate it couldn’t be easier to indulge in a little retail therapy.

Browse boutique fashion stores as well as the big chains, or search for gear and supplies for your next Great Lake Taupo outdoor adventure in one of our many ski and outdoor shops.

With more than 200 shops there really is something for everyone, and our many restaurants, takeaways, pubs and cafes are handily placed if you need to stop and recharge! 

Here’s even more reasons to shop when you are here in Taupo. We have just launched a Shop In Taupo campaign where customers can win instant prizes and cash shopping at selected Taupo outlets. Find out where these participating Shop In Taupo outlets are.
