Welcome to Taupo’s Volcanic Activity Centre

Volcanic Activity Centre
The Volcanic Activity Centre is a hands-on interactive educational centre that makes learning about the earths volcanic forces easy and fun for all ages.

Located in the heart of the Taupo Volcanic Zone, the Volcanic Activity Centre brings the explosive past and present volcanic and geothermal features to life.

The Taupo Volcanic Zone stretches from the magnificent volcanoes of the Tongariro National Park through Rotorua an active geothermal area to New Zealand’s most active volcano White Island.

This area is considered one of the most active geothermal and volcanic areas in the world today and covers an area of 19,635km.


Many of the fantastic natural features in this area are attributed to the Taupo Volcanic Zone and at the Volcanic Activity Centre, we explain in an entertaining way how all this comes about.
