This place is not the place of the Huka Falls but close by. This is a place called a rest area, where you can pull over and stop and have a picnic off the road. I had a packed lunch, sandwiches and snacks and 2 thermoses of hot water for hot drinks.
This day we were on our way to my Aunt Cara’s in Havelock North and this stop is just before Lake Taupo. It is part of the Waikato river and goes through the Wairaka geysers and Wairaka Power plant, powered by thermal energy.
I took this photo looking down over a steep cliff. It was taken a long time ago, 2014 in April.
Huka Falls and Wairaka Springs is well worth a visit if you are coming to New Zealand.
