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

    An amazing amount of water. 100,000L per second. It's blue and beautiful too.

    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

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

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

    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.

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