Great track to walk to reach Huka falls, a lot of great views and easy to walk. Huka Falls was amazing sight to behold a lot of photo opportunities and shop at the end, go to pay 50c to use the toilet.

Want to see the falls? Walk, walk, walk. Follow from town center Spa Road. Turn left to County Av. Drive till the last parking. Follow the river for 45 min. Lovely!!! On the way back take a dip in the free hot water well at the bridge. Do it!!!

Interesting waterfall. Not vertical but more a horizontal falls. Not sure why the waters really gush down though the gradient is not high. Very pretty. Be sure to go to the Spa pools too which is nearby n free too.
