“Nice!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The falls look bigger in the pictures.. but its a lovely walk and the blue water and thundering falls quite take your breath away. I just thought it would be much bigger having seen the Niagara falls recently. Still lovely, and I'd recommend doing the river walk from Huka falls to the natural thermal pools for a dip and onwards towards Taupo if that's where you're staying. The river is seriously beautiful, and at the expense of repeating myself.. sooo breathtakingly blue!!

“Just a lot of water going down a canal”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We were told that the falls are really worth seeing. We were suprised when we got there and expected to see some outstanding falls. Instead, it is a large canal with very swift flowing water that drops down a series of rock ledges and eventually fall a few metres to create a spray.

“A "MUST SEE" FREE activity.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

One of the sights you must see, when visiting Taupo. The amount of water that thunders down,per second, is incredible. Simply Stunning!!!

“Easy to reach and free”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

So well worth popping in to see. Good looking walks leading from the falls, Though we didn't allow enough time to go very far - probably a mistake on our part

“Very good - rushing waters from Lake Taupo”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Well worth a look, as previous reviewers have noted. There is ample parking and then you cross over the water to the viewing points. Very good and free. However we had some trouble finding the place as the fee-charging jet boat centre and (I jest not) prawn fishing centre seem to be where the roads and signposts lead more readily. Persevere though, it's worth it.
