How was the Huka Falls in New Zealand formed?
Lake Taupo is the largest lake in New Zealand spanning about 622 km²; this is about the size of Singapore. Lake Taupo was formed by a series of eruptions. The main Taupo eruption occurred in 181AD. The most documented eruption in the Lake Taupo area is known as the Oranui eruption. The Oranui eruption caused some distinct changes in the landscape of the Taupo area. The most obvious of these changes being the distribution of lakes in the area, and the course of the Waikato River. Prior to the Oranui eruption a lake existed in a different form, this lake is referred to as Lake Huka, and the Waikato River is documented to have run out to the Pacific Ocean via the Hauraki Gulf basin. After the Oranui eruption the landscape was changed significantly, after a period of flooding, the form of the modern Lake Taupo started to take shape. Over the years after the Oruanui eruption the course of the Waikato River changed to follow it's current route along the Hamilton basin and out into the Tasman Sea.
