Tokaanu Wharf

Tokaanu Wharf is one of the hidden gems of Great Lake Taupo, New Zealand.

Tokaanu Wharf, Great Lake Taupo


Back in the 1880s, there were few roads in the Great Lake Taupo region. Goods were shipped across Lake Taupo from Tokaanu Wharf.

Regular boat services stopped in the 1920s but this piece of Kiwi history lives on. In 2003, the wharf was lovingly restored with original beams and decking.
