The Great Lake Taupo Big Bang

Taupo's Big Bang Fireworks display is fun for the whole family.

It starts off at the Tongariro South Domain with some kid-friendly activities such as a family movie, a lolly scramble and light sabre giveaways, followed by a short walk to the lakefront for the first of two fireworks display.

The first smaller display will take place at 10pm. Music will start up after the display down at the lakefront while we wait for the big bang at midnight to welcome in the New Year.
