Taupō and Our Region

Situated in the heart of North Island, Taupō is a middle size town (26,000) 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, you truly are in a paradise location.  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, Taupō has a vibrant shopping area, with award winning cafes and restaurants.  'The Landing' offers family fund and entertainment in the form of indoor bounce/playground, bowling and a stunning outdoor mini golf venue.

Taupō has everything 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). It also boasts several natural hot spring baths, making the most of this geothermal area. Taupō has several dance studios, a theatre company (such as ACT2), a pottery studio, and several hobby clubs such as the photography club.    

If you are after a change of scenery, whether work or quality of life, nau mai haere mai.  We can't wait to see you.
