When you ahve seen the waterfall (several places, where you can take pictures) do take the forest walk along the river - very nice. Go as far as you like and return again following the same track.

We drive there thru Kerikeri. Its a beautiful spot, nice boardwalk around the top with great views and a easy/moderate path to the bottom. Great swimming at the bottom.
