Meet in the middle – come and experience Taupō
Taupō lies halfway between Wellington and Auckland offering a central destination for your business event. We’re within easy driving distance from many parts of the North Island and the airport is just 8km from town. There are regular flights from both Auckland and Wellington, and our airport is one of the country's busiest charter and private aircraft airports.
The spectacular scenery of the Taupō region will take your breath away. Featuring Australasia's largest freshwater lake, Ngatoroirangi Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings, World Heritage-listed Tongariro National Park, geothermal landscapes, the Huka falls, mineral rich hots pools and ancient forests, Taupō is beyond compare. And there's no need to just look at the views... with a range of local providers on hand there are many options for exploring these natural wonders close up, with unique and exciting experiences on offer. Our itinerary planners can create a bespoke experience for your business event.
Taupō offers a wide range of purpose-built conference venues and facilities to suit the needs of your business event. We can accommodate groups of 6–600 people, but our sweet spot is 50–200 people where we have a range of conferencing and accommodation options. And when business is done, easy access to our scenic region's vast array of fun activities will motivate and inspire your delegates further.
When the sun sets on the day, a wide range of accommodation is available to host your group, from boutique luxury lodges to dedicated conference resorts. Comfort and great service across the region's accommodation providers will ensure your delegates will get a good night's sleep, and wake refreshed and ready for another great day in Taupō.
Whether it’s action and adventure or relaxation and pampering, the central plateau region of Great Lake Taupō has it all, and more.
Fly over the mountains, volcanoes and vibrantly-coloured crater lakes of the World Heritage-listed Tongariro National Park. Land amongst the majestic Kaimanawa Ranges and partake in a beautiful lunch on the bank of a secluded backcountry river beside gin-clear waters.
Go fly fishing for the region's famous trout with a local expert or ride some of the country's most scenic bike tracks on the Great Lake Trail with a biking guide. For more blood-pumping thrills, jump or swing over a cliff face of the mighty Waikato River.
Take to the water on a luxury private launch. Lure in some trout then enjoy the catch, deliciously smoked and paired with a glass of champagne on the deck at sunset. For something even more relaxed, unwind in the therapeutic mineral pools or enjoy a luxurious spa treatment.
