Wairakei Tourist Park
Located just a few minutes drive outside of Taupo town you'll find the Huka Falls, a thundering 11 metre high waterfall with amazing crystal blue water.
The sheer volume of water flowing through the rock face of the mighty Waikato River amounts to 220,000 litres per second; enough to fill one Olympic sized swimming pool in 11 seconds!
Enjoy the walking tracks alongside the river and wander around the different viewing platforms, taking in the falls from all angles.
The Stray bus makes a stop here as we cruise through Taupo.
