Green, lush, and filled with surprises. Everywhere we went, New Zealand amazed us! From Auckland, we drove to Rotorua and then hiked the Redwoods. (Later we’d visit Craters of the Moon and the Waitomo Glowworms Caves, then Taupo and Pirongia, as well as Hamilton Gardens. Later in Australia’s Gold Coast, we visited familyand birds of Australia Part 1 of 2 plus Part 2 of 2, then we marveled at the Spectacular Views in and Around Gold Coast, enjoyed a delicious meal on the beach, saw some wild things and cute things at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, had fun with Rita Rigby, met the beasts of Brisbane and the beauty there, and enjoyed Sydney this much and that much, as well as the purring there!

Today, we visited Huka Falls, where water waits for no one!

Up to 220,000 liters (just under 5,300 gallons) of water rush down the series of falls per second. They begin at New Zealand’s longest river (Waikato River) and drain the country’s largest lake (Lake Taupo).

  1. I have visited many waterfalls in my life but no longer remember their names but simply their majestic beauty. When I was young and hiked, I never ceased to be amazed, by waterfalls….from the smallest to the largest. Thanks for sharing this magnificent waterfall!

  2. I was in New Zealand in the summer of 2009. I think of all places in the world I’ve been, New Zealand is one of my favorites. We white water rafted on a river and I was scared to death, but I am so glad I did it. Thanks for posting as it jogged my own memory of New Zealand.
