Exploring Craters of the Moon

Craters of the Moon was created in the 1950s when a large area of land north of Taupo suddenly began to get hot and emit steam. Craters of boiling mud emerged, along with other geothermal phenomena. There are wooden walkways along the way and the tracks lead to several viewing platforms on the edge of large craters.

Sightseeing near Craters of the Moon

- Huka Falls

The spectacular Huka Falls are a set of waterfalls on the Waikato River that drains Lake Taupo in New Zealand. It is the result of the Waikato River narrowing down from approximately 100 metres across into a canyon only 15 metres across. In order to see this force of nature for yourself, just hike the Spa Park to Huka Falls trail (about an hour's walk). You will pass through exotic and native forests and then you will hear as you get nearer with the loud sound of water just blasting through.

- A.C. Baths

AC Baths is the perfect place to visit with your family and/or friends. The thermally heated pool complex is open and available in all-weathers and is family-friendly, making it a great place for a day or afternoon trip.
