I like the horse shoe shape of the water fall. Short walk from the car park, needing not too much effort. We saw chickens free roaming around the park too!

The falls were easy to find. We were greeted in the parking lot by a dozen or so chickens!!! Not sure where they came from, but they surrounded our car, ready to eat! Regardless, like everything else in NZ, these falls were lovely. The paths...More

Great wild waterfall. Carpark has heaps of pot holes. Lock your car. You'll be greeted by heaps of rosters who steal the show. Nice photos of falls. Can walk out towards water.

A very pretty waterfall, very easy access. Went after a heavy rain storm, as a result waterfall ran strong. At the time of visiting we witnessed a beautiful rainbow over the falls. Would definitely visit if you are in the area.

A fast flow waterfall. Easy drive of 5 minutes from town. Walking tracks and viewing areas from a small car parking area

Haruru Falls is literally just a little bit away from the road. The car park has easy access and the walk to the top view of falls is a matter of minutes. After some heavy rain recently we possibly got to see the falls at...More

These falls are so close to the main road from Paihia to Kerikeri we didn’t think they would be much. But they are awesome- well worth stopping for.

No overnight camping at the car park that I could see when visited last week. There is the Falls Motel & Waterfront Campground on Puketona Road, perhaps look up their website if you’re still interested in a paid camp site...
