Taupo

Taupo is the Great Lake Tourist resort in the heart of the North Island of New Zealand.

Water sports like ski-ing, and para-sailing are easily available, and parachuting, bungy jumping, gliding and hunting are also available for the adventurous. There are also jet boat runs close by on the Waikato river which is the main river from Taupo which supplies water for numerous hydro-electrical stations on its way out to sea near Auckland.

 
Then there’s the golf – 4 courses, plus the Wairakei International all with 5 minutes of the Taupo township and the Jack Nichlaus designed 18 hole International course in Kinloch on the northern side of the lake 15 minutes from Taupo township.

There are beautiful views everywhere, snowy mountains, varied blue hues of the lake, crafted Maori carvings, thermal activities and lots more.

 
After the days activities there are many restaurants and brasseries to choose from for evening entertainment. Shopping in Taupo is also a pleasure not to be missed.

With so many enjoyable activities available, imagine the joy of living somewhere on the central plateau near the lake. Taupo is right in the middle of the North Island, and if you desire to travel to the main commercial centres of New Zealand, it is just 3 hours by car to Auckland (New Zealand's largest city). There is of course an airport which is on the National Airline route, and this will enable you to get there even faster.

Wellington, the New Zealand capital, is just 5 hours by car travelling south and is again available by air flight.

Then there are the popular coastal towns to the East, Whakatane, Napier (the art deco centre) Hastings and Gisborne (for the keen surfer). To the West a little further is New Plymouth. Napier and Hastings are less than 2 hours away and the others a little further. Also don't forget the renowned vineyards of the Bay of Plenty.
What a way to spent a day.

And of course we must mention Rotorua - the thermal centre of New Zealand - geysers, boiling mud, thermal baths, etc. etc. and this area is only 50 minutes from Taupo.

Taupo also has thermal activity with such places as Orakei Korako, which is accessible by a Hamilton Jet Boat. (Designed by a New Zealander, believe it or not, Mr Hamilton)
With so much on offer what better place to invest in Real Estate and live life to the maximum.
