Lake Taupo & Ruapehu Lake Taupo & Ruapehu
Blessed with world class natural assets and a prime central location
There is no doubt the Lake Taupo area is one of New Zealand's premier conference and incentive destinations. Not only is the area centrally located on the shores of the largest Crater Lake in the Southern Hemisphere, it is also at the doorstep of Tongariro National Park, a Dual World Heritage area, with ski fields, world-famous trout fishing and countless other activities to suit every type of New Zealand conference or meeting.


taupo Conference Accommodation
The Lake Taupo region which includes Turangi and Mt Ruapehu, is determined to make the most of its assets, and continues to improve existing products and develop new accommodation and conference facilities. Not only do we have a Taupo Convention Centre in the centre of town which can cater for up to 650 pax but we have five international hotel properties, Bayview Wairakei Resort and Bayview Chateau Tongariro, Millennium Hotel & Resort Manuels, Copthorne Hotel Taupo and more recently, Hilton Lake Taupo (all are Qualmark rated 4 -5 star hotel properties). Suncourt Hotel is a 3+ hotel on the lakefront and we are also well-known for our lodges, such as the exclusive Huka Lodge, Tongariro Lodge, Lake Taupo Lodge, River Lodge and the amazing Blake House at Poronui Ranch.

We boast two resort-style properties at either end of the Lake - Huka Falls Resort and Oreti Village. For those who are a little more budget conscious, we offer Taupo De Bretts Resort and Mountain Valley Adventure Lodge. The Lake Taupo region has many motel style properties that also cater for conference groups or for that association group that may be conferencing at our Taupo Convention Centre or functioning at our Events Centre which can seat over 1000 pax.

These properties have succeeded in attracting a good client-base from New Zealand's corporate and incentive markets. Taupo has all the amenities of a major provincial centre, with a well appointed retail centre, offering a wide variety of shopping, numerous restaurants and bars with easy access and parking in the central business area.

All this is complemented by a picturesque setting, close to stunning Lake Taupo and nearby gardens. Professional expertise and supporting infrastructure in the Lake Taupo area are natural extensions to these facilities.


Amazing Adventure Activities
Lake Taupo offers the ability, not only to hold large conferences, but also to hold intimate meetings and top class incentive weekends, which can take full advantage of the trout fishing, skiing, golf, car racing and other popular pursuits that the region is renowned for. Lake Taupo also offers plenty of scope to get away from the city to enjoy such activities as boat cruises, kayaking, jet boating, rafting, sailing, tandem skydiving, bungy jumping, 4 wheel drive motorbikes, mountain biking and volcanic scenic flights. For that Taupo team building event we have dedicated event companies that come up with all sorts of amazing activities!
