Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Omori and Kuratau are small villages on the shores of Lake Taupo. These two villages are enjoyed mainly by holiday makers both in the winter and summer. There is a small group of permanent residents like ourselves living here. It can be busy over the holiday periods - Christmas and New Year, but generally the villages are quiet and relaxed.
