Taupo Tourist Attractions

Lake Taupo offers many rewarding and memorable visitor attractions for you to choose from. The Lake offers plenty of fun activities - swimming, fishing (regarded as the best Rainbow Trout fishery in the world) and boat cruises. Another recommended attraction is to Kayak or boat to the Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay. Standing 10 metres tall and only accessible by boat, the carvings are trully impressive and a great way to enjoy a sunny day on the Lake. If you are looking for an exciting, action-packed adventure, we highly recommend taking a 30-minute ride with Hukafalls Jet.
