Taupō District Council has chosen a preferred option for its proposed cultural precinct project.
Taupō is now officially the 'most beautiful large town' in the country after winning its category at the Keep New Zealand Beautiful annual awards.
Taupo has won the rights to host the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in November 2020 – and it will be the biggest event the district has ever seen.
Government announcement that the Taupo District will retain its rescue helicopter has been heralded a community victory by Mayor David Trewavas.
