After the the Christmas - New Year rush
Taupo is settling down after the hectic Christmas - New Year period when the population almost doubles in size. Now is time for fun on the lake or in the great outdoors: walking, cycling, fishing, golfing or just sightseeing. There's plenty for all interests. The Tongariro Crossing is still proving popular despite the level one eruption alert, but the walk is now a return one rather than a crossing, walkers having to return the way they came after reaching the craters at the summit.

We're open again for business. The vines are pruned, the lawns are growing and the gardens are coming to life. Recent international vistors from China, Austria, Australia and French Polynesia have been surprised by our spring weather. There's lots of snow on the mountains and cooler evenings will be the norm for a while yet so make sure to bring some warm clothes.
