B&W 17 mins. 35mm 1,516 ft. The Waikato River flows from the volcanic centre of New Zealand's North Island, past farm and city to the sea. The 240 square miles of Lake Taupo, main source of the river, is a renowned trout fishing region. Close to the lake the river plunges in waterfalls and rapids past the hot springs and spouting geysers of Wairakei thermal valley. Great hydro-electric schemes have brought engineers and builders to swell the ranks of the riverside dwellers - the Maori people, the farmers, and the city folk.
