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

Whether you’re after some cliff diving or just want a nice place to paddle around in Taupo pools, there is plenty on offer. If you’re visiting in winter at least dip your toe, or take advantage of the natural Taupo attractions such as warm thermal waters dotted around the lake.

The lakefront in town is easily accessible, just jump in wherever you like. In summer the lakefront is packed with both locals and tourists so take a book, pull up a towel and spend the day. Don’t forget the sunblock!

Head out a bit further afield to Kinloch for a different thing to do in Taupo, a 15-minute drive east of Taupo. The water out there is beautifully clear and the pontoon is great for the kids (and big kids!) to practice dive bombs. If you walk left along the beach you’ll find Kinloch’s famous jumping rocks, just look for the local kids splashing around.

Whakaipo Bay is a little more secluded, perfect if you are looking for some time alone or a romantic picnic.

For another Taupo activity take the plunge into the fresh blue water of Bulli Point, located on State Highway 1 towards Turangi. There are three ledges to jump from, the highest being seven metres. This is a very busy road so make sure to park safely. There is a gravel car park just south of Bulli Point.

The adventure capital of the north island
Summertime is my personal favorite time to be in Taupo
With cliff jumping, dreamy shores and lazy rivers, you can’t go wrong
