Just north of Taupo Huka Falls is worth a visit.
Take a walk in the bush to Spa Rd, up stream of the falls, and the river comes into its own.
The clarity and colour are beautiful.
Tucked away on the west side of the river is the exclusive Huka Lodge.
This is about as close as I will ever get to seeing it. The gardens are manicured and the lawns are like the best golf course you can imagine.
Huka Jet. Thrills for the tourists at the foot of the falls.
