Guide To Taupo, New Zealand
Taupo is a town located on the shore of Lake Taupo in the North Island of New Zealand. Taupo is a centre of volcanic activity and attracts large numbers of visitors who come to bathe in the hot springs found in the locality. Indeed Mount Tauhara lies approximately 6 km east of Taupo, easily accessible by rental car which is probably the most convenient way to experience the region.
There are lots of things to see and do in Taupo, from white-water rafting and relaxing in hot springs to a visit to the volcanic activity centre. Stretching from Mt Ruapehu in the Central Plateau to White Island in the Bay of Plenty, the Taupo volcanic Zone is one of the most active geothermal centres in the world. Located just 2km north of Huka Falls, the centre has a host of interesting displays, including information on geysers and seismic activity in the Central Plateau. One can also ride a 6.3 earthquake.
Your car hire will also come in useful when you venture out to some of Taupo's other popular attractions. A must see is Orakei Korako Cave and Thermal Park, located 25 minutes north of Taupo. This valley is an area of immense beauty with geysers, bubbling mud pools and bush trails. The highlight of this attraction has to be the thermal Ruatapu Cave, a 120 metre hole with a hot pool at the bottom.
