Accommodation at Tauhara Centre, Taupo, New Zealand

Tauhara is a 60+ bed establishment but can accommodate considerably more than that with people camping during the warmer months, or bringing their own caravans and campervans at any time. Our primary accommodation consists of five versatile self-contained apartments and ten shared sleeping units (four beds). 

Choose from twin-share, single rooms, bunkrooms and camping.

The self-contained apartments are often used by organisers of conferences and retreats, teachers or guests with special needs. These apartments are also perfect accommodations for families.
