Taupo is a huge lake bang in the centre of the north island. After going way over budget in the South Island, we are now on a money saving mission.
Freedom camping does what it says on the tin, you can park for free, there are usually toilets, you probably have to sleep in the car.
So parked up by lake Taupo is where we first tried this.
Not a bad view to wake up to.
I am loving the freedom camping so far, no having to get up and out by 10am (I am not a morning person). We can actually take things at our own pace and enjoy the town.
Sleeping in the back of the car is so appealing when you’re knackered! (I’m not being sarcastic!)
