The dramatic Waipunga waterfalls cascade in three sections with a companion Waiarua waterfall tucked to the side. The 40 metre drop is dramatic especially in winter and spring with the Waipunga River in full flow.
Access is very easy with the viewing platform a mere 20 metres from the State Highway 5 car park.
The section of road is straight, coming off corners and slower sections with motorists speeding up. Look carefully for the scenic lookout sign after you have visited the Opepe Reserve (Napier to Taupo direction). The falls are approximately 50 km from Taupo.
