Hunua Falls – Recent views

Yesterday it was forecast to rain heavily with hail and possible thunderstorms but it did not. It consistently rained last week and we had a lot of rain, but the consecutive years have been very dry for Auckland, and we are going to have another very dry summer so we have been told to conserve our water.

However, I just heard a tornado hit central Auckland by the very posh suburb of the rich and wealthy St Heliers..roofs were torn off.

Hunua Falls is very close to Hunua Dam one of Auckland’s water supplies.

I have never seen or heard so much water in these Falls. You had to be there, the Falls were a very loud roar.

#1 Hunua Falls taken from the bridge.

Forgot to mention it is almost a swing bridge.

  1. We call it a “Swing Bridge”, it has some flexibility but it goes straight across. It is not really hanging. It is when other people get on, that the bridge goes up and down, and when that happens I take care..However, it is not very unstable on this bridge, some bridges like our swing bridge is more stable than others…
    You are only allowed so many people at a time on this type of bridge.

#8 Car Park by the Bridge

You have to have your foot wear scrubbed and sterilised before you cross into the bush.

That is to stop the spread of Kauri die back which kills Kauri trees.

What do you think?

    • Thanks Carol, Hunua was not badly affected. I am sorry but not sorry about those people in St Heliers, they are rich and their insurance can easily pay for repairs. You don’t live in St Heliers unless you are one of the wealthiest people in New Zealand sitting on a pile of gold.
      In a way, it teaches them what the rest of NZ has to live with
