Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Pukawa is a small holiday area on Lake Taupo. It is very popular in the summer as it is lakeside and offers safe swimming & boating. It's also popular in the winter as it is a good place to base yourself for skiing on Mt Ruapehu.

It's close to the tourist attractions of Tongariro National Park with it's fabulous summer hiking/tramping (Tongariro Crossing) & winter snow skiing/boarding (Whakapapa/Mt Ruapehu). Thermal baths, hot mud pools and fabulous trout fishing are all within 15 minutes by car. Taupo with it's restaurants, shops, stunning scenery & activities is only a 45 minutes drive. The closest town is Turangi (bank, supermarket, info centre, shops, bistro/restaurant & medical centre etc) - it is a 15 minute drive from our house.
A car is essential as public transport is extremely limited.
