​As part of our 10-year anniversary celebrations with our sister city of Suzhou, China we have been gifted an archway to commemorate the occasion.

Contractors are currently busy with the challenging installation at the southern entrance to the Tongariro Domain. Complete with concrete footings and pillars, workmen are well equipped with a crane, scaffolding and all the required safety measures to ensure there is no damage to the pieces… or their fingers!

Taupō District Council has selected a joint proposal from architectural design firm Warren and Mahoney and landscape architectural company Boffa Miskell to deliver a masterplan for Taupō's Central Business District.

The council decided earlier this year to develop a masterplan around the preferred site for its civic administration functions by the Great Lake Centre, including provision for cultural, arts, and heritage facilities to replace Taupō Museum. This followed the need to vacate its former Lake Terrace site mid last year, due to health and safety concerns with the building. The building has since been demolished.

The master plan will encompass a specific area located on Tongariro Domain including the Great Lake Centre, library, museum, I-site, Superloo, Rotary House and bowling club as well as the town's main thoroughfare, Tongariro Street. It will not look at any development on the north part of Tongariro Domain.
