About Taupō, New Zealand

Great Lake Taupō, home to the IRONMAN 70.3 New Zealand, is a popular tourist destination, boasting the largest freshwater lake in Australasia and mountains made internationally famous after being featured in the Lord of The Rings trilogy.

Come for the race but enjoy so much more! World-class trout fishing, mountain biking, hiking, adrenaline pumping adventure activities, or just enjoy a relaxing stroll along the lake front. There are restaurants and accommodation options abound; a dynamic boutique retail area; numerous arts and craft galleries and plenty of natural hot pools for soothing your muscles after the big race.

Taupō is an idyllic host venue for the sport of IRONMAN; it is a renowned and beautiful tourism destination, large enough to host international events yet small enough for the athletes and community to come together as one.
