    Getting There and Enjoying the Lake

    by keeweechic Updated May 15, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The town is three and a half to four hours` drive from Auckland and just over five from Wellington.

    There are many charter and cruise companies that offer cruises on the lake from the fast speed boat variety to leisurely cruising. Many fishing trips are also organised solely for this purpose.

    Driving around New Zealand

    Taupo is a very popular destination for tourists and kiwis alike as there is so much to see and do in the area. State Highway One runs through the town so if you are travelling through the North Island it is likely you will at least pass through Taupo.

    For travellers who are going from Auckland to Wellington, Taupo is a great place to stop over a night to break up the journey.

    For rules on driving please refer to Driving in New Zealand

    The AA website below is a good one to look at if you want to find out more information on driving in New Zealand and on travel times and distances between locations.
