Some Lake related info-

  • Maori rock carvings are 10 metres high and are only accessible by boat on lake Taupo.  The main carving depicts the likeness of Ngatoro-i-rangi, a visionary Maori navigator who guided Tuwharetoa and Te Arawa tribes to the Taupo area over a thousand years ago.
  • Horomatangi Reef is the deepest part of Lake Taupo.  The reef forms the original volcanic crater from the Lake Taupo eruption along with the White Cliffs.
  • towering 1000 feet above water and continuing 300 feet below the Karangahape Cliffs are found on the western shores of Lake Taupo.  These impressive cliffs of superhot and solidified volcanic ash are a sight to be seen.
  • To maintain Lake taupo as a wild trout fishery, you have to catch one if you want to taste one, and at 90% of the trout population you’re most likely to catch a Rainbow than a Brown.
