Taupo has many parks and beaches where you can take your dog for a walk. Or, if you have one that doesn't go completely deaf when it suits them, let them off their lead for a run. My favourite is Secombe Park, at the south end of Taupo. Lovely scenery and an area where you can sit and admire the view.
However, like all parks, keep an eye on who else is there with dogs as we had to avoid a LARGE dog whose owner could not control it but still let it off its lead, ready and willing to terrorise our much smaller dogs. And for all the good dog owners who pick up anything their dog leaves behind, I wish there were more rubbish bins available. But overall, a good place to take a break.

I am a restless wanderer who writes from the viewpoint of a middle-aged traveller who has Lupus and Sjogren's Syndrome. I am always looking for activites that offer me adventure and excitement, but which are suitable for those who aren't as fit and healthy as they used to be. In NZ, I have the help of a four-legged assistant who often appears in my photos (although he can sometimes be difficult to spot). I am a passionate Geocacher and Munzee hunter and hints on where to find these can be found at the bottom of each blog.... full info
