Follow SH 1 north from Taupo for about 1.6 km, turn right into Huka Falls Road and follow the signs to Huka Falls. A refreshment kiosk and pay toilets are located in the carpark. The track begins across the bridge. Head left to the last viewing area over Huka Falls. At the back of the viewing area the track climbs onto the cliff tops with magnificent views of the river. It then gradually descends and continues along the river to the Aratiatia hydro dam and rapids. Try to finish the walk when the control gates are due to open.
Return via this route or arrange transport from Aratiatia.

It is very impressive.
I saw the Huka Falls! It is very impressive because of so much water.
A short 10 minute walk to see the amazing power of the Huka Falls. The Falls are a mix of pale blue and white. You will hear the falls before you see them.
Breathtaking sight, easy access, good lookout points and free.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Insane waterfall, so powerful and the water is a lovely shade of blue.
If it was not raining, I would have loved to have stayed longer to enjoy the falls! The power of the falls were incredible and the colour was crystal blue!
The Huka Falls were the main attraction of the walk. Most people who were walking with us went to see only the falls and came back the way they came first. We kept on with the track which was a nice walk but not as great as the falls.
Beautiful sight, clear river, easy walk to Aratiatia Rapids, nice falls during the day draining.
Amazing to see the power of water rushing through. The water is aqua marine, I could stare at it all day.
Nice walk along the river.
Walk to the Huka Falls is nice, views of the river and the Huka Falls are just impressive.
Stunning area, got some incredible pictures.
We found a walk near the falls and it was awesome, pretty views and loads of water!
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
