TAUPO has evolved as a region of New Zealand with unique features. The volcanic ash covered some 9,000 square miles and the soils which developed, though young in geological age, were found to be highly suited to both exotic timber production and, eventually, pastoral use. Taupo is the fount of that valuable resource - water, a vital element fully exploited by man for both electricity and trout fishing.
