Lake Taupo Travel Guide: 115 reviews and 284 photos

The beautiful Lake Taupo, New Zealands largest lake is located lnland on the North Island. It is a great place for fishing,boating and other water sports. We had fun just walking, skipping stones& wading in the clean cool water. Across the street from the lake is a huge selection of shops and restaurants to suit every taste and budget. Taupo is not only a great holiday spot it also makes a great hub.The nearby Huka Falls and Rotorua are also worth exploring for a day trip or longer .

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful lake surrounded by hills with lots to see & do
  • Cons:Some would call it a tourist trap
  • In a nutshell:A haven for locals & tourist alike

    Quite an enjoyable page about Lake Taupo. I especially loved learning about Huka Falls, the jet boating and the Nature's Spa. That resort sounds wonderful yet a little "stiff".

    Interesting tips on the largest lake in New Zealand. Looks like a fine place for a vacation, especially since Huka Falls and Rotorua are nearby.

    Hi Nancy, there are many off the beaten trak places to see in Taupo, 1 being the Trout hatchery at Turangi, and places of historical interest such as old Pa sitings just out of Taupo on the Taupo Napier highway. well worth taking a look if there agin
