Activities/Attractions: The Lake Taupo region displays some of the finest examples in New Zealand of untouched, unspoilt, uncrowded country. Our region holds many natural wonders such as the largest fresh water lake in Australasia (created by the world's largest volcanic eruption of the past 5,000 years), the best one day hike in New Zealand, majestic mountain peaks and the country's largest ski area.
Surrounded by stunning volcanoes, bush clad mountains and a spectacular landscape lies the largest freshwater lake in New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere, Lake Taupo. The water is stunningly blue, the air fresh and unpolluted, the towns are bustling with cafes and exclusive shopping - scenic delights greet visitors at every turn. The bustling, tourist township of Taupo offers every type of shopping and is a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday, and/or some adventure, culture and is close to so many 'happenings'!
Some of the best trout fishing in the world has international anglers flocking to the area while mighty mountain peaks draw skiers and adventurers alike to experience the pristine environment. There are also:
"We stayed just three short nights with Susan and Tony Dalby and could have stayed a lifetime. We were made very welcome the moment we arrived (late) and this hospitality was evident throughout our stay ... from the beautifully cooked breakfasts ... plenty of choice, fresh fruit, cereals, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon ... all well presented. All rooms are tastefully decorated with everything anyone could need ... check out the "stick teas". The overall standards were exceptional, spotlessly clean. Susan has a great eye for detail and colour matching. Go there as soon as you can. More of a home than a homestay."
"During our 6 week tour of NZ, Wharewaka Lodge was easily the best accommodation we stayed in. The Lodge is beautifully designed, decorated and equipped. Susan & Tony are wonderfully convivial hosts and welcomed us into their home. Food, comfort, attention to detail and so on were marvellous - in a word unimprovable!"
