“nice little falls”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

About 4 km outside Paihia on the way to Kerikeri, nice to sit out on the rocks and relax watching the water fall. It is lit up at night which is pretty to see. Can also kayak in the river below

“Pretty small falls but easy to get to and see”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Not the most spectacular falls but close to the road and easy walk down to them. Wide falls vs long drop

“Detour to see the Haruru Falls”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Rather unspectacular experience. We made a detour as we had some time to spare but were really rather underwhelmed by the experience. It is free, parking is easy and it is just off the main road. They are beautiful enough but far from spectaculer.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

It is great to be able to get so close up to a waterfall. There were lots of people sitting on the edge in the sun, soaking up the sights. Well worth a visit.

“Worth a Look”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

If you are in the area, the falls are well worth a look. The scenery is pretty, the falls rugged and unique.

But that's about it. Not too spectacular, but we are spoilt in this country, so perhaps they are more so to international visitors?

If you're in the Bay of Islands, the short drive/detour is worth the effort.
