Lake Taupo - Acacia Bay

Mis à jour par Pulse Energy

Acacia Bay beach is located in the heart of an urban environment close to the entrance of Lake Taupo. Lake Taupo is New Zealand's largest lake. It lies in an active geothermic region, in a caldera created over 26,500 years ago by a super volcanic eruption.

Nearby, you will find one of the most spectacular natural rock carvings. In 1977 Matahi Whakataka-Brightwell, a master carver gifted Mine Bay with his work. A 10 meter high likeness of Ngatoroirangi, a Maori navigator that discovered the Taupo area, was carved in the rock face and a mermaid and lizard were carved at the base. The carvings are only accessible by water, with kayaks being the preferred method of transportation to get here.

Waikato Regional Council measures water quality at 12 locations on Lake Taupō from November - March.

Freshwater sites are tested for E.coli levels.

A beach has a GREEN current status when no single sample is greater than 260 E. coli/100 mL and has a rank of GREEN. A beach has a RED current status in Swim Guide when a single sample is greater than 260 E. coli/100 mL and there is an AMBER or RED rank. A beach is marked Grey in Swim Guide when there is no current or reliable monitoring information available.

Swimming is not recommended within 48 hours after a heavy rainfall or around storm water outfalls and at stream mouths.
