We have seen our share of waterfalls but this took our breath away with the ferocity of the beautiful aqua coloured water squeezing through the narrow pass in the rocks. We could stand right over it on the bridge and stood mesmerised by the splashing and rushing and overall sense of freshness of the water. Don't miss it.

The beauty of this falls is second to none with its beautiful turquoise water. Never seen like it. We went here early one morning and the water was so fierce and wild it was incredible. There are walks nearby and a car park. If you're in Taupo don't miss this.

Great jet boat ride, have been in lots and this one definitely has the most 360 rides of any of them. River is very wide and calm so a bit of excitement is needed with adding in the spins. The falls are worth the visit and being down in a jet boat near the white water at the bottom of... More

Have been here many times. Never fails to impress. The sheer power is awesome. Other falls may be larger and more scenic, but this is great for getting up close and personal to the power of water

Beautiful, long walk - takes approx. 45-60 mins to reach the falls from Spa Park; some hills, which may be challenging for some, although you can park directly opposite the falls & walk across the bridge. Fantastic, free activity, but remember to bring some change as there is a charge to use the toilets at the falls!
