There is a great swimming hole to the left of Mahuia Rapids which is off SH47 close to the Whakapapa Village turn off. Good picnic area. Take your rubbish with you, there are no bins.

At the top of the chairlift - Knoll Ridge Cafe.

Ride in summer to 2000m up Mt Ruapehu and experience New Zealand largest active volcano up close.

Tupapakurua Falls track starts 3kms along Fishers Track in National Park village, an awesome trail run or walk. The first part of the track is well graded up to Taranaki Lookout. The walk to the falls is downhill along a slightly rougher track marked with lots of blue tape, there are some cool viewing points along the way, especially the one that looks out over huge flat areas that are covered with ponga trees and give this Jurassic Park type panoramic view – awesome. Continue down to the bottom and follow the stream up to the falls, you can almost get right underneath them.
