Lake Taupō

The beautiful Lake Taupō is about the size of Singapore – more of an inland sea really.

Taupō is centrally located in the middle of the North Island, approximately 3 1/2 hours’ drive from Auckland and 4 1/2 hours’ drive from Wellington.

According to Māori legend, the lake is the pulsating heart of Maui’s fish (New Zealand’s North Island).
