Spa Park Hot Spring information
The hot thermal waters of the Otumuheke Stream meet the bracing Waikato River at this pleasant and well-worn spot under a bridge, creating a free natural spa bath. Take care: people have been known to drown while trying to cool off in the fast-moving river. It's near the beginning of the Huka Falls Walkway, about 20 minutes from the centre of town.
