Huka Falls Taupo Reviews
Under water pressure Feb 03, 2011
The Huka Falls, situated in the north of the town of Taupo and only a five to ten minute drive away from the town itself, are definitely an eye-catcher.
Several lookouts and viewing platforms give you the possibility of taking a good look at the thundering stream and the imposing falls. The water's intensive colour is a mixture of beautiful bright ice-blue and foaming white – this range is due to the water's light reflections.
Enormously large water masses cut their way through the river bed of the Waikato River at this point.
The water drops several times during its journey through the Wairakei Tourist Park. You can watch waterfalls dropping over about 8 to 11 metres at different stages. So, grab your camera and take a couple of great pictures inspired by a gorgeous scenery in refreshing surroundings.
If you're keen on some more action you should check out the Huka Fall Jet Boat experience offered by a local company.
