Tour of Waikato, Stage 5 (Kuratau)

 Tour of Waikato, Stage 5 (Kuratau) 

Beautiful Kuratau sits on a flat bay on the west side of Lake Taupo, surrounded by lush, rolling farms in all directions. It’s the quintessential New Zealand lakeside village where everyone knows each other – one boat ramp, a shop, a tennis court, a playground and a summer winery with a cafe. But what else do you really need? Still, if you’re craving a little more excitement, Kuratau is a perfect jumping-off point, with the wonders and adventures of Tongariro National Park and mountain ski areas just a short drive away in one direction, and the stunning ancient Pureora Forest Park equally close in the other.
