The Great Lake Taupo region is a tourist hot spot with its incredible lake and mountain vistas and exhilarating activities on offer, but the town of Taupo is also home to just over 20,000 people who are lucky enough to be living the dream on the shores of New Zealand’s largest lake.
The Taupo town centre is one of those extraordinary places that you’ll visit and wish you lived in. In fact, many of our permanent residents had exactly that thought when they first visited Taupo, so they chose to make it their home. Moving from all corners of the globe and from within New Zealand, these people have joined longer-standing residents to form a diverse and caring community who embrace the quintessential kiwi lifestyle. Relaxed living, beautiful surroundings and positive people are what it’s all about.
