Huka Falls is New Zealand’s most visited natural landmark. Located just outside the Taupo township, the ‘falls’ are more like extreme river rapids that rush down a narrowing of the Waikato River. You can hear the 11-metre-high waterfall before you can see it. On a clear day, the water looks ice blue in colour as it plummets down the river, which eventually opens up into Lake Taupo. Cliffside viewing platforms and a walking trail allow you to see the majestic falls from different angles.
