Hi neighbours - an earthquake which shook Taupō last night is one of the largest to hit the region in the last 40 years.
The shallow quake was centred under the lake bed 15km northeast of Turangi. "I was watching a movie in bed and it unsettled me so much, I couldn't continue," said Stephen Kelly of Wharewaka.
Did you feel the quake?
Taupō District Council's proposed redevelopment of the facility is budgeted to start in July 2020.
The council decided a new museum and art gallery would be built on Tongariro Domain to create a 'cultural heart'. Is this what Taupō needs, or should money be spent elsewhere?

Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?
These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.
