Taupo Local Attractions

Discover Lake Taupo for an excellent New Zealand holiday experience. With fishing, hiking, nature encounters and thermal experiences to choose from you will not be lost for choice in Great Lake Taupo.

Huka Falls

The Huka Falls are the largest falls on the Waikato River, near Taupo on New Zealand's North Island.
It is the most visited natural attraction in New Zealand!

The Waikato river is one of New Zealand's longest rivers and it drains Lake Taupo - the largest freshwater lake in all of Australasia.

At the Huka Falls, the Waikato River which is normally 100m wide, is forced through a 20 metre wide gorge and over a dramatic 20m drop.

Every second up to 220,000 litres of water gushes through the gorge and shoots out over 8 metres beyond to create a beautful blue/green pool.

Mount Tauhara

Mt Tauhara is 1,088 m above sea level; the mountain formed about 65,000 years ago.

Taupo Museum

Small museum with unique local history exhibits, art displays & a scenic garden with native flora.
