What people are saying:

Lake Taupo is so big that it looks like a sea. It is a must-see attraction not to be missed when traveling to the South Island of New Zealand! If you live in the city, you can walk to the lake. There are many sailing yachts and golf directly into the lake. The people of New Zealand are really good at playing. The green area on the lake is also very comfortable to lie in the sun. . All hotels in the peak travel season are fully booked and must be booked in advance. There is also huka waterfall nearby to check in.

    An excellent lake location with many good resaurants in the town

    Just a great place to eat facing the lake and just chill out admiring the views. There is also a golf challenge for those who play and you can win $1000NZ on the spot...it was busy when we went!!!
