Nice spot for a picnic

The falls are quite picturesque and have some nice grounds nearby to picnic. They are easily accessed from the car park over the bridge from the main road.

Pop in if you're passing but don't make a special trip. Theres a path leading up from the treaty grounds which makes an afternoon of it if you enjoy a walk through the mangroves

This is a lovely spot to stop at on the way to other places. It is only about 5km from Paihia but we went past it on the backroads to the Waitangi Treaty House, and up to Kaitaia. It is a very small 'falls' but is a welcome rest if that is what you want. You can see them from... More

Nice Scenic falls a short drive from Paihia. As the falls are only around 25 - 30m and as there had not been much rain prior to our visit so the falls were not 'pounding down' however the spot is very nice and we took some pretty photos whilst we were there. Nice to visit when staying in paihia

Short drive from city centre. A little rock hopping and opportunities to take photos. Nothing overwhelmingly awesome but it is FREE and complete with chooks in the carpark

Missed it the first time and went down the wrong road, but there was a sign telling you no falls down that road so went back down the hill and an easy find about 200 meters down the road. Easy parking and short walk to the falls. Had a nice rainbow by the falls when we arrived. well worth a... More

Haruru falls is about 4.5 kms away from the city center and is really deserves a visit. It is very beautiful, a perfect spot for picnic. Just 2 mins walk from the carpark and is easy to walk over the falls.

Did a quick walk down to the falls and it is all so beautiful! Perfect spot for a picnic! Even though you can see it from the top, I would recommend going to the bottom for an even better angle!
