Stretch your legs.
Our guests sometimes ask us to recommend what to do for a couple of hours to fill up their spare time. Jet boating? Bungy jumping? Well, what can they do without spending money?
There are heaps of activities in Taupo, which you don't even have to take your wallet out of your pocket. I took my kids down to the lake front the other morning, and biked to the place called Wharewaka Point.
This track is very well maintained, nicely paved and both sides are grass fields for most of the way.
It's a share-track, which you can either bicycle or walk.
We toddled all the way to the end and came back, took us 1 hour and a half. There are few playgrounds on the track, therefore not only for serious walkers, but also for those who have little children.
When you have had enough shopping or had a hard night out drinking the day before, this might be an option to reset your body and the wallet.
