Travelling south along State Highway 1 we soon stumble upon the North Waikato town of Huntly.
The Huntly Power Station is a large coal-fired power station, sited on the western bank of the mighty Waikato River. It is New Zealand’s largest thermal power station, situated in an area which is New Zealand’s largest producer of coal.
The power station and river are Huntly’s signature landmarks and we found the ideal spot at which to stop to showcase them both.
Huntly is home to Huntly Thistle AFC.
