THE XENA FILM LOCATIONS.
About 15-20 miles South-East of Auckland you can admire the Hunua waterfalls in the Hunua Ranges.
The Hunua Waterfalls are situated on the Wairoa River. These waterfall have been used for a connection scene shoot in Mortal Beloved.
But you already recognized it from the most well known episode with this waterfall : ALTARED STATES.
Below you find some screengrabs and the original pictures taken. You can see more of it on the video at the video section of the Xena Film Locations.
We visited it 13 years after the shoots and we surely can tell you that nature changed a bit. We had to search for the exact shooting angles to discover the exact filming place. Always have your Ipod with you so you can take a look at the episode screengrabs. That was a brilliant idee to take that along.
