Waikato River New Zealand The Huka Falls are a set of waterfalls on the Waikato River that drains Lake Taupo in New Zealand.<br />
A few hundred metres upstream from the Huka Falls, the Waikato River narrows from approximately 100 metres across into a canyon only 15 metres across. The canyon is carved into lake floor sediments laid down before Taupo&#039;s Oruanui eruption 26,500 years ago. <br />
The volume of water flowing through can reach 220,000 litres per second - the roar was tremendous, the colour of the water spectacular! <br />
