Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo is a spectacular freshwater lake covering 616 square kilometres of the centre of New Zealand's North Island. The lake was formed by a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago and is renowned for its geothermal features including steaming geysers, boiling mud pools and silica terraces.

The Waikato River runs from Lake Taupo and flows down to the Huka Falls where more than 200,000 litres of water can thunder down every second. View the magnificent falls for yourself and feel the rush of energy that the roaring water creates. Then visit the town of Taupo where you'll drive along the shores of the Lake and pass by the Wairakei Geothermal Power Station.
