Amazing view of short rapids with powerful waters. Little cafe with usual items. Been told one of the most photographed locations in New Zealand. Well worth a visit 10 to 20 minutes all you need

Short walk from the car park. Falls were more like a swift churning current. Color was beautiful. Crowded. Interesting to see but anticlimactic.

Well worth the walk with gorgeous, stunning water fall at the end. Go early as lots of visitors. Took us a lot longer to walk than suggested- all sign posting different

Short walk, great view points, fantastic experience with that amazing water. I've been twice, and I would solidly recommend it to every kiwi, as well as every visitor to our country

Easy walk to view the falls from parking. Very popular on this sunny and warm day. Clearest water anywhere tumbling down in the narrow passage under the walking bridge was hard to stop watching . Only negative was that they had a charge of 50cents,...More

The Huka Falls are not the highest falls you will see but the intensity and speed is very impressive. They are also very beautiful. This is a must see attraction while in the Lake Taupo area.
