Top things to do at Lake Taupo

Thursday, 20 December 2018

With Lake Taupo being the largest lake in New Zealand you are really spoiled for choice with all the adventures and activities that go on in and around it. Taupo is an awesome place to visit year round - summer is the perfect time to get out and about at the lake and winter is ideal for the snow sports. Let us help you out and recommend some of our favourite things to do over at our neighbours at Lake Taupo this summer. 

  1. Bulli Point
  2. Kayak to the Maori rock carvings
  3. Whakaipo Bay
  4. Chris Jolly Lake Cruise
  5. Paetiki Bakery

 

1. Bulli Point

Show off your Olympic diving skills by jumping off rock ledges and into the fresh blue waters of Lake Taupo at Bulli Point. There’s three ledges to jump from (the highest is 7m) and the water’s so deep there’s no chance of hitting the bottom. So, pull out your biggest back flips and show the locals what you’ve got - or they will show you what they have got!
