The Huka Falls are a set of waterfalls on the Waikato River that drains Lake Taupo in New Zealand. It is one of the best things to see in Taupo, and is also one of the free things to do in Taupo – a visit to the stunning cascading Huka Falls. Huka Falls is just a short 10-minute drive north of Taupo and is one of the Taupo top 10 places to visit
It’s easy to see Huka Falls, from the Huka Falls car park it’s a short 1-2 minute walk to the bridge. Alternatively, you can take the easy 90-minute walk from Spa Park up to Huka Falls or get even close by taking a jet boat ride or river cruise.
