415 Huka Falls Road, Wairakei, North Island.


You'll hear the Huka Falls well before you see them it's the sound of nearly a quarter of a million litres of water per second erupting from a natural gorge and thundering 11m into the Waikato River below. This incredible waterfall is the most-visited natural attraction in New Zealand it's hard to tear your gaze away from the endless, mesmerising torrent. It's caused by the Waikato River, normally 100m wide, being forced to narrow to just 15m wide as it passes through a hard volcanic canyon. This increases the flow pressure immensely, causing the water to burst out with great force as the gorge ends. No camping or overnight parking allowed.
