In early July I stopped off at the Huka Falls on a trip north to check out what is apparently New Zealand’s most visited natural attraction.
The Huka Falls are located on the Waikato River close to Lake Taupo. The approximately 100m wide river gets squeezed through a 15m wide canyon carved into ancient lake floor sediments and drops 6m with the flow sometimes approaching 220,000 litres per second.
So it’s not a massively high waterfall – but with that kind of flow it’s pretty impressive.
This is one of those videos cobbled together from shots taken incidentally while actually enjoying the moment. I tend to document experiences for later reference (not social media) then realise – when I subsequently decide to make a video – that I probably should have taken more care.
Try the 4k version – ideally on a larger screen and with some good audio.
