Centred around New Zealand's largest lake, Lake Taupo is a fishing and boating paradise. Taupo township is the perfect base for exploring the region.
The town of Taupo sits at the edge of Australasia's largest lake. Local attractions include trout fishing, skiing, and geothermal parks.
Fishing is the local obsession in Turangi. This town sits on the banks of the Tongariro River, which is famous near and far for its rainbow trout.
Situated on the northern edge of Lake Taupo, Kinloch is a small village with a great, big view.
If you really want to get away from it all, take your fishing rod or mountain bike to Mangakino. This friendly little town is handy to three hydro lakes.
