Taihape & local activities:
31km south of Waiouru on SH 1. Internationally recognised as the Gumboot Throwing Capital of New Zealand, Taihape is a quaint town nestled at the northern end of the Rangitikei region.
A "halfway to everywhere point", Taihape is often packed with travellers heading up to the ski fields and Tongariro National Park. Holidaymakers stop in Taihape too - the laidback lifestyle and range of adventure activities make the town an excellent weekend getaway destination.
The Rangitikei River is particularly well known for its heart-pumping white-water rafting; grade 5 rapids are found just east of Taihape at Oukeokahu, where the river descends through a maze of boulders in a spectacular canyon. But be warned - only experienced rafters should venture into this part of the river.
For something a little less daunting, visit one of Taihape's immaculate gardens or try gumboot throwing on the permanent throwing lane (operates on selected days). Other options include bungy jumping, the Flying Fox, kayaking, fishing, hunting and heritage tours.
