Located on New Zealand's North Island, Taupo sits on the lakefront of Lake Taupo where you can spend hours or days playing on the water from fishing to jet-boating, so long as you don't fall over the Huka Falls that the lake drains into. When the brain is about to implode you can run away from your coworking space and indulge in a bit of self-pampering at the hot springs.
Taupo is within the southern Waikato Region and has a population of around the 24,500 mark. Officially a "borough", Taupo is often referred to as a city. It's the 20th largest urban area in New Zealand and the 2nd largest in the Waikato Region. The name "Taupo" is the abbreviated version of its Maori name "Taupo-nui-a-Tia", which means the "Great cloak of Tia", as it was the explorer named "Tia" that discovered the lake. This is a tourist hub, especially during the summer months when folks frolic in the lake or play amidst the volcanic mountains of Tongariro National Park where you can sky dive and paraglide. It's economy apart from tourism is based in plantation pine forests and related industries.
The scene of many major international sporting events such as the Ironman New Zealand and the Oxfam Trailwalker, Taupo is a city for those into their outdoor pursuits when innovative brains can't get busy creating innovative startups in coworking spaces.
