Had a great few hiking trails with friends. Unfortunately the weather can change with short notice, one hike had 145km/hr winds and hit -10degrees. But we had a great time because we were prepared.

The tracks are a good, easy walk to find amazingly clear water falls. Documented well as you go along.

The Huka Falls are a very impressive example of the force of nature in water. Forced between narrow rocks, the outflow powers onto the river below. The left trail is less crowded but has less intermediate viewpoints.

Friends and I walked along the river down to the Huka falls, which is a simple walk with basic hills but mainly flat. The falls are awesome but it’s very crowded.

You don't need much time to take in the sight that is Huka Falls. Spend 30 minutes or take the walking trails, you won't be disappointed!

Nice break from a long drive. Was really busy the morning we dropped by, but we managed to get parking on the street and walked down to see the falls. Really worth the trip down and it was also a beautiful day for photos.

Enjoyed the drama of these beautiful falls. The water is such a lovely colour and the rush of the falls is exciting.
