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.

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.

I did the walk from the rapids to the falls. The way was partly nice, partly not so nice (next to the street). But the rapids and the falls were so breathtaking!
