Our latest walk in April 2022 we walked the Huka Falls track from Spa Thermal Park in Taupo. Its an easy 1 hr 30 min one way walk. Once you reach Huka Falls there are plenty of different viewing points to watch the water rush through the tight ravine of sheer rock cliffs, creating a canal of big churning rapids. © Freewalks.nz
