“So much water”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Unlike Europe you can look at this for free, and it is well worth a look. It is not a high waterfall but super impressive.

“Lovely”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This was a lovely place to visit. Nice on a sunny day. Free car parking and a little store to buy a nice cream to walk around with.
The Huka Falls are breath taking and a must see in Taupo!

“exciting view of a foaming torrent”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

When travelling on the North Island on the route from Rotorua to Taupo on Highway 5 you must find time to stop at Huka falls and be mesmerised by the sheer volume and strength of the water as it flows from Lake Taupo into the Waikato river. This is one of the free attractions and there is a small car park a snack kiosk a track with a bridge over the falls and a path to other viewpoints. Interesting to see power boats come up to the falls and then turn away before the currents get them

“Stunning views”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Just a short walk from the (free) car park, the views over the falls were fantastic. Walks for the more adventurous were clearly marked.
