Nukuhau is a central, peaceful suburban area situated on the Northern side of Lake Taupo and its town. It is an easy stroll along the river to the Marina, or through the leafy domain and amphitheatre into town. An ideal base to explore the thermal regions of Taupo and Rotorua, some of the landscape featured in the Lord of the Rings films and just over an hour's drive to the North Island's ski fields, you can experience world class trout fishing, water sports, adventure tourism, thermal pools, local wines and fascinating Maori culture all in one vacation!
Taupo is a stopping point for many inter-city bus services, but public transport is not available within the town (it is quite small). You will find it only a five minute walk to the nearest supermarket and the town centre from our apartment.
