Bring some cut up potatoes, kumara and pumpkin to the Thermal Walk in Tokaanu. There are some pits in the hot water you can put your food in. Cover, come back in a couple of hours and voila your food is steamed – this is a poia, similar to a hangi but steamed, not smoked.

Kinloch is another popular beach on the shores of Lake Taupo, a little lake side holiday spot. There is a great mountain biking track that starts from here over the hill to Whakaipo Bay. In the summer there is a good pontoon just off the shore in the lake to jump off.
