Located in the centre of the North Island, the Lake Taupo region is one of the most beautiful and naturally diverse places in New Zealand.
Taupo Language is located in the middle of the township and offers a family-like atmosphere. It’s just a short walk from the stunning lake front, so an early morning walk along the lake before heading to school is a magical way to start the day.
International visitors and students enjoy spending time in Taupo, which is known as an adventure playground. You can mountain bike, bungy, trout fish, kayak, play golf, go rafting, try waterskiing and much more!
You could have a coffee or dinner at one of the great cafes or restaurants in town. It’s an excellent way to spend time with new friends and practise your English. You can also relax at the Thermal Resort or go swimming in the thermally heated pools.
Tongariro National Park World Heritage Area is a great place to do some hiking. In this geothermal wonderland, you can see mud pools and steaming mineral pools as you hike through native bush.
In the winter season, Mt. Ruapehu, New Zealand’s largest ski resort, is the place to try snowboarding and skiing .
There’s just so much you can do in and around Taupo, but one very unique experience you should try is a visit to the Maori Rock Carvings at Mine Bay. You’ll need to go by boat or kayak but it’s an ideal way to take in the breath-taking views of Lake Taupo and the surrounding mountains.
If you’d like to live in a beautiful lakefront town with a good international vibe and no shortage of activities, then Taupo could be the perfect place for you to learn English!
