The actual height of the Huka Falls in New Zealand is dependent on the flow of the Waikato River.

At the top of the falls is a set of small waterfalls dropping over about 8 metres.

The most impressive, final stage of the falls (pictured here) is an 11 metre drop.

This cliff drop is the most spectacular part of the Huka Falls – more so than the main part of the falls itself!

The exact height of Huka Falls fluctuates between 7 and 9.5 metres and this is totally dependent of the volume of water that is flowing through the river.

In actual fact, the Huka Falls are not known for their height at all. This is overshadowed by the impressiveness of the sheer volume of water flowing through, which measures in at up to 220,000 litres of water per second!
