It then depletes Taupo at the lake's northeastern edge, makes the Huka Falls, and streams northwest through the Waikato Plains. It discharges into the Tasman Sea south of Auckland, at Port Waikato.

The Waikato River has otherworldly significance for different neighborhood Māori tribes, including the substantial Tainui, who view it as a wellspring of their mana, or pride.
