Hi welcome to Taupo's original and favourite backpackers. Rainbow lodge was purpose designed & built for the needs of travellers by Mark Dumble (fishing expert??) and Sue Mrozinski themselves seasoned travellers. They had spent several years on the world's highways and by-ways and having accommodation experiences that are sometimes described as "Character Building" they settled in Taupo famous for its Rainbow Trout and beautiful scenery. Having had my own character building experiences I came to rest at Rainbow lodge and worked closely with them for a year before they handed me the reigns. The hostel opened in 1984 and I took over in 2002 and I have been quietly refining Rainbow Lodge to meet the needs of today's travellers! I'd like to invite you to take a stroll through the place and see the reason why I enjoy it and Lake Taupo so much! Ross McFarlane.
