and natural wonders!

With so many fun, free activities to do in Wairakei Tourist Park we thought we would share with you a few ways to spend 48 hours in the park and get to experience our amazing activities all within minutes of each other. Check out our Family Fun and Couple’s Retreat Weekends below!

Fun for the whole Family!

If you’re looking for a fun-filled family adventure, you simply can’t go past everything on offer at the Wairakei Tourist Park. Only 10 minutes drive from downtown Taupo, it’s got action aplenty – with some epic scenery thrown in for good measure. 

And if you’ve got a spare 48 hours to pack in a range of family –friendly activities, this is where you should set up camp. Literally. There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors here in NZ and 

Wairakei Thermal Valley has the perfect place to pitch your tent or park up your motorhome/caravan in beautiful peaceful, natural surroundings, before you get exploring. 

Stroll through the Valley’s historical thermal area passing by steaming cliffs, rare plant life, ancient sinter formations and fumaroles, then sit back and relax with a delicious traditional homemade Devonshire Tea before meeting the friendly animals and settling in for the night.

Just make sure you hit the hay early, the next two days are jam packed!
