A pleasant but short walk to a variety of vantage points. Benches to sit and quietly enjoy the spectacle - the falls, the mist, and the sun making rainbows in it. Close to main routes and Kerikeri town centre, but feels like a million miles away.

Fantastic waterfall, which were very easily reached by a short walk from the car park. We managed to get some good photographs of rainbows in the waterfalls. Because it was wet some of the paths were muddy but this did not detract from the visit.

There is a reason why it's called Rainbow Falls- and this is because a perfect rainbow is formed at the base of the waterfall. Be daring and climb around the rocks to be behind the waterfall. A REAL highlight of our trip.

The Rainbow Falls is a lovely little trip... Take a picnic and make a day of it... If you go on a day that is sunny, you will be rewarded with a view which explains the name of the falls...

We only stayed a few minutes - If we had more time we'd stay longer and explore it was very nice :) x
