Things To Do

Explore Central Plateau

The Central Plateau includes The Great Lake Taupō region and is one of New Zealand's most beautiful lakes, and the largest.

Take a cruise or kayak tour to see Maori rock carvings or try trout fishing on the lake. Or jet boat to the base of Huka Falls with Hukafalls Jet for half an hour of thrills, fun and jet boat excitement along a beautiful river environment, lined with native bush sheer rock cliff faces, the power of Huka Falls, not to mention the adrenalin pumping 360 degree spins. 

Afterward visit the Huka Prawn Park on the Waikato River. There are three NZ Cycle Trail Great Rides close by and Tongariro National Park is just over one hour south.

When visiting Taupō stay at Heritage Collection The Reef Resort or Heritage Collection Anchorage Resort.
