Some scary sumps but great white water in NZ

Discovered some crazy geology on the Tarawera out here in NZ. Whole river sumps underground to emerge in the middle of an enormous cliff. Some great white water though.

I'm looking at the idea of a trip to NZ in 2018/19 (when one of my pensions pays out a lump sum!!).
Is there a guidebook available to NZ white-water?

Many thanks, that seems to be just what I was looking for - I'll order it!
