    Worth stopping by here on your way to or from Tapou. Head towards the lookout point on a sunny day for great views of the crystal clear water

    If you don't have a car you can do a beautiful walk (about 1 hour return) from the hot spa pools close to the city of Taupo to the falls.

    Awesome falls. Make sure you walk the 2 minutes to the other viewpoint as it's amazing to see how much water pounds over into the river below.

    👍 Amazing roaring rapids! 😍 Try the helicopter ride for an awesome aerial view. Will definitely try the jet boat ride next time. 😉

    You'll want to get there at least an hour before sunset otherwise the sun will go below the treeline.

    A must see in Taupo, whether by car, bike or on foot. Great walking trail with a separate bike trail

    If you have time, strap on your hiking boots and walk down the trail towards spa park.

    Walk a couple of mins up the track towards the dam for a higher less crowded view of the falls!
