Discover Taihape, its history and the town today
The town of Taihape lies near the confluence of the Hautapu and Rangitikei Rivers, about 500m above sea level. Sheltered within a valley amidst the high country of the Central North Island, Taihape is close to the Ruahine ranges, on State Highway 1.
Taihape is a sleepy wonderland of rural beauty and secretive adventure waiting to be experienced. Ranging wildly in topography Taihape is your unlimited access pass to the real New Zealand. Come see. Take a break from the beaten track and come say gidday.
Getting here is easy: by car, by bus, by motorcycle, by cycle - we've even had people coming through who were walking from Auckland to Wellington! Contact Taihape Information Centre (9.00 am - 5.00 pm every day) for help with your travel plans.
