Under Construction.

We didn't have much time to see Taupo (less than an hour in the town itself actually, as we were just passing through pressed for time) but I'll be back soon to share some more of the beautiful photos we had time to take of its magnificent lake and surroundings.

This first photo is taken on the outskirts of Taupo, near the Huka falls, especially famous for its jet boating (plus hydro electricity and other things as well, I'm sure!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Town set on beautiful huge lake, almost like a Swiss lake town setting
  • Cons:A bit remote perhaps, though off the beaten track can be great too
  • In a nutshell:Beautiful lake, interesting town, plenty of sportive activities

    Not bad for a quick trip! Hope you guys are getting some rain down there. (We're over the drought here not surprisingly)

    It certainly is a nice spot to visit - you've done well for a 60 minute tour!! The Huka Falls is also famous for a murder!
