Huka Falls


The water flooding out of lake Taupo only exits via one river, the Waikato. At one point the Waikato has to go through this narrow gorge. Millions of gallons of water flowing over the Huka Falls each second. A really spectacular sight to see. We viewed it from a jet boat on the river. Not an experience that I would like to repeat, but good fun to try once.

Hi Nicola,

I remember seeing this on our 'look and see holiday' in 2001, before we emigrated to NZ. Not from a jet boat though I might add! Far too scary for me :0
