The Lake Taupo Across the Lake Swim starts at Acacia Bay and finishes across the lake 4.2km at Three Mile Bay. There is also a 2km and 1km event which starts and finishes at Three Mile Bay. The event provides those competing in the Ironman the opportunity to have a training run and is New Zealand's largest freshwater challenge.

The Lake Taupo Across the Lake Swim started back in 1963 and is Taupo’s longest running event, with thousands of swimmers taking part over the years. This iconic Taupo event is organised by the Lake Taupo Rotary and any proceeds from the day will go towards community projects in the region.
