Looking to have an awesome day out with your mates in Taupo? Check out our suggestions on how to have a great boy’s day out in Taupo.
Just 10 minutes north of Taupo is the Wairakei Golf Course and Sanctuary. At Wairakei you are not only playing on a world class championship course but you are completely immersed in the unspoiled beauty of a wildlife sanctuary. A two meter high predator-proof fence surrounds the golf course leading to an environment where fallow deer and iconic birdlife such as kiwi have been able to flourish. Plentiful birdsong and magnificent scenery make for a relaxing and unforgettable day out with friends on the golf course.
Lake Taupo plays home to large stocks of Rainbow and Brown Trout making it a trout fisherman’s paradise. Your time and budget might be limiting factors in how you choose to spend your fishing time in Taupo but a private fishing charter is definitely the best experience. Using local guides mean you will go to the best spots on the lake and their boats will be stocked and equipped for a great day out with your mates.
Eating and Drinking
Finish your day off with some good food and beer at Lakehouse Taupo. They have a great selection of New Zealand craft beers, including the local brewery Lakeman Brewing. Located directly across from the lake and with plenty of outdoor seating, Lakehouse is the best spot to have a cold drink, tell a few stories and watch the sun do down. An excellent place to refuel, the menu features all the usual pub favourites made with fresh, local ingredients.
