Located in the centre of the North Island, The Point Villas in Lake Taupo is the perfect base from which to discover the delights of New Zealand: the beauty of New Zealand’s largest lake at your doorstep, the volcanic parks and Maori culture of Rotorua to the north, the unique volcanic landscape of the Tongariro National Park to the south and the vineyards and wineries of the rich Hawkes Bay region to the East.
Over 200,000 years ago a gigantic volcanic eruption created the huge cauldron that today is Lake Taupo. The result is one of Earth’s deepest lakes and also one of its most beautiful. Huge Totara logs, relics of Taupo’s massive 186AD volcanic eruption, are still found near the harbour entrance. Here in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island geological evidence of our ever-changing planet abounds!
Lake Taupo is a year-round destination – an ideal location to spend a week or two relaxing, soaking up the beautiful scenery, enjoying the Lake’s crystal clear waters or partaking in a vast array of activities and sports available nearby.
The Lake Taupo region hosts many world class events, to find out what is happening during your stay visit www.eventscapital.co.nz.
