Remember New Zealand 2006 (no 5)

On the way back to Wellington we stopped at a Restaurant/cafe.

This elegant creature was terrorizing all the birds on the lawn

A real beauty!

We also stopped at the HUKA Waterfal

The Huka Falls are a set of waterfalls on the Waikato River that drains Lake Taupo in New Zealand.

A few hundred metres upstream from the Huka Falls, the Waikato River narrows from approximately 100 metres across into a narrow canyon only 15 metres across. The canyon is carved into lake floor sediments laid down before Taupo’s Oruanui eruption 26,500 years ago.[1]

The volume of water flowing through often approaches 220,000 litres per second.[2]

Next stop is back in Wellington. I’ll have some interesting photos from in and around Wellington in the following Remember New Zealand 2006.

See you next time!
