This place is a true manifestation of natural beauty New Zealand has to offer. The waterflow and the fall creates a spectatucal scene. A must visit.

Good parking and a good, small souvenir/ice-cream shop. Well worth the visit in my opinion. Not far out of town. Lots of adventures nearby... More

We are so very lucky to have nature on our back door step, even though I've been here a number of times it still wows me :-)

Nice place to drop by whilst in Taupo. Entry to the falls are by car and is for free. Amazing view of white water and certainly worth dropping by for some photos. You can also take a jet boat for a closer view of the rapids.
