Worth a visit

Easy acess by car - falls are not vertical but rather a rush of whitewater through a cut. Worth a visit. No entrance fee.

Quite flat terrain and accessible for most people. Free viewing. Not the best falls we've seen but well worth a visit.

This is a must see attraction when visiting Taupo. To see the turquoise water rush between the two rock faces is spectacular. Then a bit further down, those awesome falls as the water breaths that sigh of relieve from being squashed between the two rock faces. This attraction lends itself to some excellent photography. It is simply spectacular attraction.

This is a great experience for the family and we never tire of going. We also enjoy watching the floodgates being opened. Recommended!

Awesome amount of water pouring over the edge. Powerful and beautiful in colour. very popular place to go and it is FREE. from here you can go on two nice walks - one to Spa Park which is 45 minutes there and then 45 minutes back to the falls. also you can walk to the Aratiatia dam and that is...
