Lake Taupo is situated in the middle of the North Island, and is the largest lake in the Southern Hemisphere.  Taupo is the region's main centre.  It has a stunning location - right on the shores at the Northern end of the Lake, looking across to the snow-capped peaks of Tongariro National Park.

Accommodation choices range from world famous lodges, hotels, motels, home stays and tourism award winning backpacker hostels.  Just a few minutes North of Taupo at Wairakei Tourist Park are boiling mud pools, thermal valleys, geysers and hot mineral springs.  New Zealand's most popular visitor attraction, the spectacular Huka Falls, is right next door.

Taupo has a smorgasbord of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars, streets of great shopping, and a distinctly cosmopolitan feel.  It's also the exhibition centre for a diverse range of beautiful local arts and crafts.
