It was good that Haruru Falls is so close to Paihia and Waitangi and a quick walk from parking, because it's not very impressive, Our ecological daughter exclaimed 'erosion!' at the muddiness of the water over the low falls, Also the longer walking trail was closed due to bad winter storms which Northland had experienced.

The water was quite muddy as there had been some bad weather but we got some great pictures of a rainbow coming up out of the falls

The waterfall's themselves are pretty awesome to look at, and if you go to the treaty grounds its only a short pleasant drive to go and have a look. I suppose thats its disadvantage - its just too close. There is no mystic or challenge to get there and there is a lot of development close by.

Sounds strange but it IS great viewing, and if you had to walk into the bush for half an hour I'm sure you would think its absolutely fantastic

a lovely place even though we went after a huge flood. Not large falls but worth a look anyway...........

A friend of mine said awesome things about this place but unfortunately, my girlfriend and I didn't enjoy it as much as we thought we would. More die to the fact that the walking trail from the Treaty Grounds was shut due to the flooding that has run rampart on the North. So we drove to the falls. It just wasn't as impressive as Rainbow Falls in Kerikeri. Would recommend Rainbow Falls over this one.
