Location Map
Taupo has a population of 20,310 (2001 census). Until 1989 Taupo was officially described as a city, but it is now administered by the Taupo District Council, the district including both Taupo itself and the surrounding hinterland. Despite this, it is still occasionally referred to as a city.
Taupo is located at the north-east corner of Lake Taupo, and functions as a tourist centre, particularly in the summer, as it offers panoramic views over the Lake and Mountains to the south. To capitalise on the large number of visitors, Taupo has seen the development of a number of tourist ventures from Sky Diving, Jet Boating, "Paragliding" and other such activities.
