“Only if you have extra time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Just a small waterfall with some walking trails. Not a "must see." If you are strapped for time visit some other sites

“Walking track to Haruru Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Excellent 10km return walk to the falls and back, favourite part being the mangroves we passed by. The track starts near Waitangi and there is car parking at the beginning of the track. Moderate level of fitness required.

“The Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

No charge for these falls and you can get up close and personal...right up to the edge, which we did. They're not huge but it's all about the roar apparently.

“Nice waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

A pleasant trip to a waterfall. a bit out of town so we used a local tour company which also took you to some other sights - very good and inexpensive. These tours only seem to operate when cruise liners are around however.
