Wairakei golf + sanctuary is situated in the Wairakei tourist park which is an extraordinary geothermal area just north of Taupo township. cultural experiences, bubbling mud and hot pools are a major attraction for visitors to the Taupo region, and Wairakei golf + sanctuary is one of the most popular golfing destinations in New Zealand.
