Huka Falls

The Huka Falls is one of New Zealand’s most powerful (and definitely the most-visited) waterfalls.

The falls occur at a spot where the Waikato River narrows from a width of around 100m down to a narrow 15m-wide canyon and the volume of water passing through the falls is often close to 220,000 litres per second.

Most buses and motorists stop off here to and from Taupo, but the most rewarding way to visit is by hiking the Huka Falls Track that begins at the Spa Thermal Centre on Spa Road in Taupo.

It is possible to take a jet boat ride right up to the base of the falls.
