The track is great for a range of abilities/ages. Offers pleasant walking with some ups and downs and was being used by folks from teens to retired when we were there. Good view points dotted along the way and you end up at Huka Falls...More

Best waterfall I've ever seen. The water is a beautiful pale blue colour that you don't see elsewhere. A must in taupo

Heaps of parking. Open until 8.30pm. Come here as witness the true power of the Huka Falls whilst being mesmerized by the turquoise waters and refreshing spray. Great viewing decks. Short drive from the city center

I hate crowds, so was not expecting much. We walked the short 15 minutes to the falls, very pleasant trail, not crowded. The falls themselves were crowded but then there were a series of trails that connected. We walked to the "spa" area, a nice...More
