On the way out of Taupo, we stopped off to get a look at Huka Falls. The surge of water is impressive as a natural feature. The Kiwis, as you would perhaps expect, use it for an extreme sport boat ride as well as power generating. We all know that there is a lot of volcanic activity around New Zealand. It is perhaps natural to assume that this is not good. There are situations where the Kiwis have turned it to their advantage. One example is the thermal valley ...
... long drive, so we found a last minute speed boat trip on the river. It was only 30 minutes but great fun being driven 80km/hr up and down the rapids! As holiday park guests we had half price entry into the thermal park there so we went for a soak after tea. The outdoor waterpark was huge with one cool pool (30*c- no thank you!) the main pool which was 36*c and a mineral hot pool at 39*c. It was much less smelly than the mineral pools at Rotorua so a much nicer ...

Scary.
... of the Moon there was still time to visit Taupo's beautiful local waterfall Huka Falls for a photo opportunity. New Zealand boasts an abundance of waterfalls, as we were to discover in the next few days, with this one being quite short but immensely powerful. The water being swept over could fill an Olympic swimming pool in a mere 12 seconds!
The next day we visited Taupo's prawn park to get some seafood in the belly before our bike ride. In ...
