Central Plateau

Geo-thermal activity in the Central Plateau has created New Zealand’s largest lake, Lake Taupo, from which the power of New Zealand’s most visited attraction, the Huka Falls, flows. It has also created the active volcano Mt Ruapehu, a popular ski area in winter, and Mt Tongariro where you’ll find the Tongariro Alpine crossing, ranked as the best one-day hike in the country.

The geo-thermal activity in the region also provides multiple options for a dip in naturally heated hot springs, while access to places like Craters of the Moon allows visitors to witness this geothermal phenomena up close.

Must-do

  • Take a dip in the Tokaanu hot springs
  • Skydive high above Lake Taupo
  • Walk the Tongariro crossing
  • Visit Huka Falls
  • Catch a boat to the Maori rock carvings at Mine Bay
