An interesting day trip can be made visiting each of the 8 hydropower stations that effectively capture the energy in the River's 1,100-foot (335 metre) descent from Lake Taupo to Cambridge. To access the pdf Travel guide go to: Waikato Hydro Travel Guide
The spillway at the Aratitia dam is opened daily at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon, 2:00 pm (winter and summer) and also 4:00 pm in summer to recreate these rapids, showing how they were before the hydro scheme harnessed the head. Heather Johnson (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) comments: A real must. We send all our guests there when driving to Taupo. An amazing demonstration of the power of water.
The above comments are incorrect: they refer to the Taupo district, which is a long way from Kaiteriteri in the Nelson region!
