The Waihaha River is a river of the Waikato Region of New Zealand's North Island. It flows from its origins in several streams west of Lake Taupo, the most important of which are the Mangatu and Waitaia Strams, which have their headwaters in the Hauhungaroa Range. The Waihaha flows into the Western bay of Lake Taupo at the settlement of Waihaha, 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Kuratau.
