About Our District

The Taupo District is an extraordinary place to live, work and raise a family. We are the custodians of this land and like generations before us who raised families and dedicated their lives to making this place what it is today, we take responsibility for steering the way forward for future generations.

It is true that home is where the heart is. It’s that sense of belonging to a place and a community that gives comfort and instils a sense of purpose. We are fortunate to live in such a stunning place and we continue that tradition of stewardship. We have a shared commitment and a strong sense of responsibility to nurture and sensibly grow this district for future generations.

Located in the heart of New Zealand’s North Island, the Taupo District is in the centre of it all. The region has world-class natural attractions: Australasia’s largest fresh water lake, a dual World Heritage national park hosting one of the best one-day walks in the world - the Tongariro Alpine Crossing and New Zealand's most visited natural attraction, the mighty Huka Falls.

Our district is made up of many diverse communities; that pride in diversity is what knits us together.
