Taupo and Our Region
Situated in the heart of North Island, Taupo is a middle size town (36,000) in the middle of paradise and a unique destination to live in. With the crystal-clear freshwater lake, surrounded by native bush and close to New Zealand’s largest ski field. We are making the most of what our area has to offer with frequent opportunities for the students to Ski, Tramp, mountain bike, sea kayak, rock climb, and camp. Besides that, Taupo has a vibrant shopping area, with some nice cafes and restaurants.
Taupo has all a big city would offer: a movie theatre, great sports facilities (25 m swimming pool, football park, rugby fields, hockey turfs, squash courts, indoor sports facilities, tennis courts, a great network of mountain bike trails, basketball courts and many more). Taupo has several dance studios a theatre company (ACT2), a pottery studio, and a photography club.
Being right in the center of the North Island makes Taupo easily accessible with a small domestic airport offering flights from Auckland and Wellington, and an easy three-hour drive from Auckland International Airport. Intercity buses connect Taupo to other areas. There are many good reasons why Taupo is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Taupo is the country's event capital, making it a vibrant and attractive town where everyone feels easily at home.
