The case’s name, Huka, is a set of waterfalls on the Waikato River located in Taupo, 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.

The name Huka is the Maori word ‘foam’ , appropriate as the falling water and rapids certainly resembles foam, especially flooding conditions.
