Turangi is a town where you can live a relaxed lifestyle with a population of around 4,000. It is nestled close to the tourist town of Taupo- a haven for all things adventurous from fishing to hunting, mountain-biking and hiking. Being inland, summers are hot and winters are cold –the perfect excuse to soak in the naturally heated hot pools after a day’s skiing in Mount Ruapehu.
