We stopped here first thing in the morning on our way to Wai-o-Tapu. The intense blue and power of the water is a sight to behold and an easy walk to see.

Easy to get to, plenty if views. Theres a few look out points along the walkable area to give some different views. Dont require long as you dont need to hike there. Allowing 30 minutes for viewing and photos will be enough

Huka falls is not far Taupo attractions, this is a great walk with some amazing views of the falls. The boat ride to the falls also looks good if you can afford to do it.

The Huka falls are a must see if you're at Taupo or nearby. I recommend a helicopter flight over the falls. Absolut amazing.

Great powerful waterfalls on the Waikato river, outside Taupo. Its free to walk and see them. But you need to pay to go to the toilets here.

Huka falls is easy to find, parking available, and a very enjoyable easy grade walk following along the falls. There are also walks that you can start from here to Aratiatia rapids or along the river. You can also drive to these places.
