Enjoy the breathtaking mountain and lake views at the Feast of Tabernacles in picturesque Acacia Bay, a few minutes’ drive west of Taupo town in the central North Island of New Zealand. Services will be held at the Tauhara Centre located at 60 Acacia Heights Drive (off Mapara Road), Acacia Bay.
Acacia Bay is about a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Auckland, and a five-hour drive from Wellington. Alternatively, flights are available into Taupo from Auckland or Wellington. The venue is a 15-minute drive west from Taupo airport.
Taupo is a popular tourist resort town, nestled on the banks of Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s (and the Southern Hemisphere’s) largest freshwater lake. Local attractions include many water-bound activities such as world-class fishing, boating, whitewater rafting and jet boating. If you prefer more land-based activities there are plenty of walks, hikes, biking tracks, golf, geothermal attractions, honey hives and natural hot pools.
Rotorua is a one-hour drive East and hosts many activities including sheep shows, Zorbing, the Luge, zip lines, sky swing etc. Waitomo Caves is a two-hour drive West where you can enjoy black water rafting or explore the Glowworm Caves.
There is limited on-site accommodation—some dormitory style or self-contained units. Information on the venue and accommodation is available at: www.tauharacentre.org.nz/ .
