Take a boat trip out on the lake, to the Maori rock carvings iconic to Lake Taupo. These boats are also recommended if you are wanting to get married! Great place for a wedding!

Food scene
Shawn the Prawn lives here. Great visit for families with children. Catch a prawn, have it cooked, and eat it. And, if you don't like catching prawns, but love eating them, just head on into the restaurant overlooking the Waikato river. Great menu (mostly Prawns) and a bar available too for an afternoon sip by the river. Relaxing!

Taste some of the world's best honey made right here in Taupo. The local Honey Hive will show you how the honey is made. You can taste so many different varieties, make sure you leave at least an hour for this visit. Great NZ ice-cream here too!

The BEST Bungy jump in NZ. Jump down over the great Mighty Waikato River. Stunning views, crystal clear water below. You can even be "dipped" in the river. If not Bungy, do the Swing.

Just beautiful.. this parasail on the Great Lake Taupo is spectacular! Pristine crystal clear water, views of the mountains (a bit of snow even in the summer). This activity is for everyone! I've done it, and loved it!
