This is the Māori legend about Mt Tauhara:

The warrior mountains of Taranaki, Pūtauaki, Tongariro and Tauhara were deeply in love with Pīhanga the mountain that stands above Turangi at the southern end of Lake Taupō. A battle erupted to win Pīhanga's favour and the victor was Tongariro. At their defeat, the other mountains decided to leave Tongariro's domain, travelling as far away as they could in the course of one night. Taranaki fled west towards the setting sun, and Pūtauaki and Tauhara fled north towards the sunrise. Pūtauaki moved fast and is now located near Whakatane and is also known as Mt Edgecumbe. But Tauhara was sad and with a heavy heart he traveled reluctantly. When overtaken by dawn he had only reached the north eastern shore of Lake Taupō. Here he stands to this day looking mournfully across the lake towards his lost love, Pīhanga.[3]

Tauhara is the point to which Ngātoroirangi, the high priest of Te Arawa canoe, and ariki-ancestor of Tūwharetoa, climbed when he first came to the region seeking lands for his followers.[4]

There is a steep walking track to the top of Mount Tauhara, starting at Mountain Road. On a clear day, the summit offers excellent views over the Volcanic Plateau, encompassing the entirety of Lake Taupo in the southeast.


Beautiful day out here. Spent a little bit of time on the deck enjoying the view of

Our “Work” Trip to Taupo in the Tesla

Sure love reviews like this on Trip Advisor: Whilst we didn't sample other B & B's in Taupo, we can't imagine one being better. Rob & Becky are lovely people and wonderful hosts. Their home is extremely spacious and our bedroom was a generous size complete with walk in robe and large bathroom. The bathroom also had special touches such as perfume and great quality shampoo and conditioner for your use. Our room had a very large window with views of the lake and was attached to a guest kitchen with complimentary beer and wine in the fridge. A special touch and something that we have never experienced at any other B & B was the 6.30 canapes and drinks served in their beautiful upstairs sitting room. Having the opportunity to sit and chat with Rob & Becky, as well as other guests that were staying was a real treat and something we looked forward to. On the other hand if you were more private and happy to do you own thing that was not a problem either. The upstairs terrace has views from every vantage point of the lake and a hot tub if you want to relax. We found Rob & Becky very knowledgable and full of information about the area having lived there for many years. Acacia Bay is a short distance out of Taupo but we were offered transport into town for dinner if we needed it.

"As a norm we never choose guest house stays as we like our privacy. Well to our surprise we had a fantastic time sitting by the fire drinking wine and sharing stories. What a lovely stay with panoramic views. We relaxed and enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality so much. All the extra treats is something we will not forget. I recommend Tauhara Sunrise any day. The rooms are beautiful with private bathrooms and spacious closets (no suitcases spoiling your room). Breakfast was lovely every morning. A great stay overall" ... Trip Advisor, Feb 2012
