“Impressive but not outstanding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Enjoyed the drive both ways from Paihia. The short walk into the falls was fine. Falls were impressive, horseshoe with a fair amount of water but not outstanding as waterfalls go. Would be interested to see them when the river was up after winter.

This is well worth a visit if you're in the Pahia, Waitangi area. Also some nice walks between here and Waitangi.

“Even better to Kayak in the falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

I decided to kayak near the Haruru Falls of a summer evening. I had a look at the falls during the day and to be honest, they were far more impressive of an evening, particularly when we found ourselves under them! They're not bad to view from the sidelines but you will enjoy the experience much more if you decided to Kayak and get closer to the action.

“Small waterfall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

If you are not interested in jumping into a pool, from a small waterfall, or if you don't happen to be passing right by this "waterfall" I really wouldn't make a special effort to go there. It's a 5 minute visit at best.

“good visit with a very short stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Great place to visit and see a waterfall if you dont want to walk for miles. Its not a very big waterfall but its decent and worthwhile for a visit
