The Beauty, Peace and Calm of Great Lake Taupo

When you join us in Great Lake Taupo for the Wanderlust Festival, you will be welcomed with open arms into nature’s ultimate playground. Our warm sunshine, indigenous forests and geothermal landscape will rejuvenate your senses and make their way into your heart and soul. Stunning mountains, a beautiful lake and healing natural hot pools will envelope you in a beauty, peace and calm you’ve never before experienced.

Great Lake Taupo is renown for its adventure and outdoor activities. With endless opportunities for everything from gentle strolls to an invigorating hike, from a lakeside cycle to an all-day mountain biking adventure, skydiving, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, parasailing or a gentle cruise on the lake, you will find something that makes you happy and fills your spirit with the natural wonders of this beautiful part of the world.

Our festival takes place at the beautiful and historic Wairakei Thermal Resort, the largest international 4-star resort in the North Island. Dating back to the late 1800’s, the resort is set in timeless geothermal grounds with modern accommodation and an abundance of indoor and outdoor leisure options. You couldn’t ask for a more relaxing environment to take yourself away from the everyday world and into the Wanderlust experience.
