Taupiri is a small township of about 450 people on the eastern bank of the Waikato River.

The Waikato is the first region south of Greater Auckland. It has two spectacular landscapes—one above ground, the other below. Above ground the view is dominated by the serenity of the Waikato River and the rich rolling green of productive farmland. The main centre is Hamilton - a city that serves the thriving farming and university community.

The mighty Waikato river is best experienced from the deck of a classic paddle steamer. While the world passes by, an interesting commentary will tell you about local landmarks, the history of the region and riverbank life.
