Day 12 – Wellington to Taupo
We drove from Wellington to Taupo, and I have to say that the north island looks more like Australia. We drove through a desert-like area after passing through green hills filled with sheep. It’s amazing how much the landscape changes in just a few short kilometres. Once we got to Taupo, which has another massive lake, we drove to Huka falls. It’s a very shot drop, but the volume is amazing. It has almost 220,000 litres of water flowing per second. The photo isn’t of the actual falls but of the river it flows into.
