@tokaanuthermalpools @tokaanuthermalpools

Highlights of the day

  • Tirau / little quirky town
  • Putaruru Blue Springs & Te Waihou walkway
  • Lunch at the lake
  • Tokaanu Jetty / Historical Wharf
  • Pihanga Art Gallery
  • Tokaanu Thermal Walks / Hot Springs

Corrugated iron sculptures festoon Tirau, we check the side roads for a cheeky toilet stop. Then it’s off to view pure deep blue ribbons of spring water where over 65% of New Zealand’s bottled water is sourced. Next is a glorious lake to hear stories of settlement, valour and commerce as we relax into Taupo time. Find out about a quiet backwater that once rivalled Taupo with its busy wharf. Now the crowds have disappeared with the occasional fishing buff enjoying the peace of the lake.
