  Huka Falls
by MichaelFalk1969

The Waikato River has its source in Lake Taupo itself; from here, it is funneled through a narrow gorge before the river releases its waters through the ten-meter-drop that is Huka Falls. The falls can be admired from several lookouts; tour operators also offer speedboat tours that bring you right to the bottom of the waterfalls - you`re guaranteed to get wet !

Directions: a short drive north of Taupo, direction Rotorua; well sign-posted

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
