Nice way to view the lake front from the water.

Cruising Lake Taupo on Doughboats is one of the best things to do in Taupo. Pack a basket full of snacks and cruise along the lake with your family and friends. You don’t want to miss out on this experience while you’re in town.

If brave enough you can try the swing also.

Heard great things about these hot pools but need to try ourselves. Not far from Bach.

Warming up in a geothermal hot pool on a cold day - one of the reasons to love Great Lake Taupo in winter.

Great to view the power of water but don't get caught below when alarm sounds for gates to open.

Aratiatia Rapids filling with water. The rapids are formed when the dam gates of the Waikato River are opened a few times a day. At this spot, the Waikato River falls 28 metres in the space of one kilometre. The surging rapids have been harnessed to produce environmentally sustainable hydroelectric power.

The story behind this unique attraction on the lake

In 1976, traditional marae-taught carver Matahi Whakataka-Brightwell paddled past a rock alcove on Lake Taupo and had a vision of a tattooed face. Four years later, the artwork of his ancestor Ngatoroirangi was complete. The carving now towers fourteen metres above the deep water of Lake Taupo and is one of the North Island of New Zealand’s biggest tourist attractions. Find out more at www.greatlaketaupo.com/maorirockcarvings.

One of the best views of Great Lake Taupo you will find is from Mount Tauhara in Taupo. This 2.5km trail climbs to the summit at 1,088 metres, offering panoramic views over Lake Taupo and the central North Island. This beautiful mountain is sacred for local Maori so walkers are asked to keep to the track and respect the environment. #LoveTaupo #GreatLakeTaupo #NZMustDo #NewZealand
