Taupō is more than just its lake (although that’s pretty stunning!). It’s also the perfect place to get the whole family outside and moving, with stunning scenery and walking trails. On Thursday Oct 28 at 5.30pm, get the fam jam strolling for a worthy cause: The Pink Walk Taupō! It’s a 5km leg stretch to raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. Four-legged friends welcome! Maybe we’ll bring Max... 📸: The Pink Walk on Facebook #pinkwalktaupo #rapidsjet #dosomethingnewnz #backyourbackyardNZ  #taupo #thingstodotaupo #tourismnz #lovetaupo
