Roadmap - National Park
Today we follow the New Zealand Road Map to the highest urban township in the nation. It's on State highway 4 and just 20 minutes drive from two of our largest, and best known, skifields. Tourism is the main industry - 15 hundred visitor beds here, in a town with a population of just 174 at the last official count. The main attraction is our largest active volcano and her two smaller sisters which sit in close proximity.
