View was ok- but lookouts could have been in better locations. Ground is rough and rocky- not suitable for disabled visitors. You have to PAY for each person to use the toilet! We're hundreds of tourists who push and shove you out of the road so they can get better views. Unless you pay for a helicopter or boat- is... More

Stunning views. The power of all that water rushing down the river is amazing. It's a little off the main road but we'll worth the visit.

Such an unbelievable sight! A must see if you are in the area - the sheer volume of water crashing over here is immense!

Lovely place to visit either as a quick stopover or to use the trials to walk up and downstream of the falls. The carpark is right next to the Huka falls and is easily accessible for all.

The Huka falls are a fantastic spectacle and certainly a must see while you are in Taupo, we have taken several overseas visitors there over the years. There is really not much more to add other than to say sure you don't miss them.

I had the most magical walk from Spa park to the falls. The scenery is stunning. The water turns from bright green to the most amazing blue as it pushes down the falls. You can walk, jog or cycle the route which is up and down. A bit steep at times but boy what views. There is even a tiny... More
