Where are the Huka Falls?

Huka Falls

The Huka Falls are located in Wairakei Tourist Park - around 4.8 kilometres (or 5 minutes drive) north of Taupo following the Waikato River, on Zealand's north island.

If you are driving from Auckland, follow SH1 to Taupo then turn left at the Huka Falls sign to Huka Falls Road.

There is a good view of the falls from a loop road just off the main highway. A swing bridge, originally built during the Maori Wars, crosses the river and a path follows the east bank to various vantage points.
