Getting There & Away
Taupo Airport is 8km south of town. Expect to pay about $25 for a 12-minute cab from the airport to the centre of town.
Local Connector buses are run by Busit!, including the Taupo North service running as far as Huka Falls and Wairakei, twice daily Monday to Friday.
Great Lake Shuttles offers charter services around the area, and can hook you up with bike hire.
There are plenty of shuttle services operating year-round to Turangi and Tongariro National Park. Ask at the Taupo i-SITE which will best suit your needs as services vary according to season (ski or hike).
