Taupo Activities

There is so much to see and do in Taupo and the surrounding area. Below are just a few suggestions.

Taupo Markets

Take the opportunity to interact with local artisans and craftspeople at the Market Central Taupō on Sundays, rain or shine. Meander through the diverse offerings at the markets of food trucks, artesian stalls and local produce stands while listening to live local music and enjoying the lake views.


Bungy Jump

Toes over the edge, you're about to leap from New Zealand's only cliff-top bungy. The cantilever platform positions you high out and over the crystal clear waters of the Waikato River – where you can jump solo or tandem with a friend. Whether you choose to get dunked or stay dry, this is an adrenalin-fueled thrill you'll never forget.


Craters of the Moon

Feel the heat of the Earth as you explore a geothermal valley hissing with clouds of steam and view cauldrons of bubbling mud from a viewing platform. Wooden boardwalks have been constructed to protect visitors from the heat of the soil and these are regularly moved as new vents emerge.


Huka Falls Bridge and Lookout

Take a scenic walk along the banks of the Waikato River, or simply explore the many lookout points at Huka Falls, one of the most visited natural attractions in New Zealand. The incredible volume of water tumbling over the falls is due to the Waikato River being forced through a channel of hard rock only 15m wide and 10m deep. The river emerges with a rush at the northern end to form the falls.


Hukafalls Jet

This half hour of thrills, fun and excitement takes you along a beautiful river environment, lined with native bush, sheer rock cliff face and hot water streams. Hold on tight as you'll be travelling in a state of the art jet boat at an incredible 80km an hour!
