An introduction to Great Lake Taupo

Described as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the North Island, the central plateau region of Great Lake Taupo boasts the largest freshwater lake in the southern hemisphere, a myriad of fantastic hiking and mountain biking tracks, international quality golf courses and world-class trout fishing.

We are home to the largest commercial tandem skydiving drop zone in the world, have New Zealand’s highest water touch bungy, and enjoy some of the best white water rafting in the country. We are also within easy driving distance of the Tongariro National Park, which features the largest ski area in New Zealand, and the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.

Partner these outdoor activities with a great cosmopolitan town centre bursting with cafes, bars and restaurants and a thriving boutique retail scene; and enough accommodation options to suit all tastes.

Great Lake Taupo truly is nature’s ultimate playground!
