Maori rock carvings: In the late 1970s master carver Matahi Whakataka-Brightwell came to his mother's land at Lake Taupō. On a boat trip around the Western Bays he saw the cliffs at Mine Bay and decided to use them as a canvas for his work. The Maori rock carvings at Mine Bay on Lake Taupō, are over 10 metres high and are only accessible by boat.

Lake Taupō is an amazing place. The lake is about the same size as the country of Singapore and is formed in the crater of one of the biggest known volcanic eruptions in history.
