We had completed the Huka Falls jet ride earlier and wanted to see the falls from a different perspective. Really enjoyed the walk - easy track

The force of the water is amazing and the colour blue is beautiful. The falls are free and an easy 5 minutes walk

Stunning but just worth a short visit. Very easy drive from Taupo and plenty of parking but very crowded.

Water was very blue and took good pictures. Make sure to wear a bathing suit if planning to swim at the hot springs.
