Marvel at the breath-taking geothermal scenery, stunning waterfalls and World Heritage-listed forest reserves, as you drive from the south of Auckland located in the centre of New Zealand’s north island lies the largest freshwater lake in Australasia. A land of fire and ice, Lake Taupō, a stunning natural cauldron, is ringed by snow-capped mountains, and surrounded by geothermal ‘hot spots’, such as bubbling mud pools, fumaroles and hot springs. A huge range of family attractions for adults and kids, adventure and adrenaline activities, as well as peaceful nature-based experiences that will get you back in touch with the real world. A rich cultural history and locals who love to share it with visitors. There’s never a shortage of things to do in Taupō making it one of the best holiday destinations in New Zealand.


Just in 10 minutes’ drive from  Taupō town centre, along a beautiful forest-clad road that passes the world-famous luxury resort, you’ll hear the Huka Falls well before you see them – it’s the sound of nearly a quarter of a million litres of water per second erupting from a natural gorge and thundering 11m into the Waikato river below. This incredible waterfall is the most-visited natural attraction in New Zealand – it’s hard to tear your gaze away from the endless, mesmerising torrent.

A popular attraction is the Māori rock carvings on the cliffs of Mine Bay. These can only be accessed by water so lake cruises are a great way to explore them. Towering 14 metres above the waters of Lake Taupō, the Māori rock carvings have become one of the biggest tourist attractions in the north island of New Zealand. If you want to sit back, relax, and explore the lake, going on one of our Taupō Māori Rock Carvings Lake Cruises is the best way to experience the best of Lake Māori. Cruise to the popular Māori Rock carvings while enjoying the inspiring scenery that unfolds around you. Learn about the spiritual and cultural significance of the area from the skipper and informative commentary. Sit by lake Taupō and eat Fish And Chips. Or as the locals say Fush n’ Chups. Discover why Kiwi’s are so fond of this takeaway meal!
