The Huka Falls are the largest falls on the Waikato River, near Taupo on New Zealand's North Island. The Waikato River is normally 100m wide. At the Huka Falls, it is squeezed through a 15 metre wide canyon and over a 11m drop.
Every second up to 220,000 litres of water gushes through the gorge and shoots out over 8 metres beyond to create a beautful blue/green pool.
