Tongariro Domain, alongside picturesque Taupo Boat Harbour, is a lovely place to wander at any time of the year.
If you are in town on a Sunday join a guided walk of this interesting park-like area bounded by the lake and the Waikato River. These guided walks leave every Sunday at 2pm from the Taupo Museum. The walk takes close to an hour and you will visit historical sites and points of interest around the South Domain, Gardens, The Boat Harbour and the Tapuaeharuru Redoubt established in 1870 by the Armed Constabulary.
