Day 12: Taupo

There is a huge amount to do in Taupo but unfortunately the weather didn’t help us out on this occasion! We started the day in the tourist information office (iSite) looking at the list of things to do in the rain. In the end it brightened up enough for us to walk up to Huka Falls, a waterfall on the Waikoto River. We also visited ‘Craters of the Moon’ (an area full of steaming geothermal craters) and a local glassblowing factory and sculpture park.

We had an authentic New Zealand cinema experience in the evening before parking up for another night at the yacht club.
