Point of Interest

3 from 4 users.


The Kerikeri River, at the Wharepuke Falls, and the larger Rainbow Falls, tumbles over basalt lava fields, which flowed into the river valley following volcanic eruptions some 200 million years ago. You can see interesting rock formations close to the Wharepuke Falls. At the base of these falls is a popular swimming-hole.

Worth the easy walk, nice waterfall, and even a second one nearby :) You can park your car down Alderton drive, then find the path to the river near the tennis court and enjoy the 30 minutes walk through the forest.
