Nice place to drop by whilst in Taupo. Entry to the falls are by car and is for free. Amazing view of white water and certainly worth dropping by for some photos. You can also take a jet boat for a closer view of the rapids.

Great track to walk to reach Huka falls, a lot of great views and easy to walk. Huka Falls was amazing sight to behold a lot of photo opportunities and shop at the end, go to pay 50c to use the toilet.

Want to see the falls? Walk, walk, walk. Follow from town center Spa Road. Turn left to County Av. Drive till the last parking. Follow the river for 45 min. Lovely!!! On the way back take a dip in the free hot water well at the bridge. Do it!!!

The Falls are only 9 meters high at the bottom end but the water is channelled through a natural rock ‘chute’ for some 100meters to reach this point – the water is an amazing crystal clear sky blue as the turbulence churns the water with air as it rushes through - flows are constant the volumes of water filling the...
