An excellent place to relax and unwind.

An excellent place to relax and unwind.
Can be reached by a longer walk (about 90 minutes) from Karangahake Gorge car park or by a short 1-minute walk from Waitawheta Road, where it meets SH2.
There are no benches, toilets or water taps - so please be prepared accordingly.

Easy walk to a stunning waterfall.
Feb. 2020
Short easy walk from the side of the road. Uneven gravel surface not really suitable for mobility devices.
No public bathrooms.
Bank down to the waters edge is slippery, care must e taken or it will be nasty fall. River rocks are slippery.
Great scenic spot, lovely looking falls, usually has a number of people jockeying for photo positions.

Quick Walk

On our way to Tauranga, we saw a sign stating that there was a waterfall. Watch for the green sign on the side of the road to see this beautiful waterfall. It’s a quick easy walk down a well worn path. Park along the side of the road.

Would be pretty on a nice day

Nice setting, quiet and calm, pretty waterfall, but not worth a trip to, only stop if passing and need a leg stretch. Weather wasn't great when we went, windy and cold and didn't make the waterfall look as pretty with grey clouds ahead.

it is beautiful as well as the gorge, what was special is that we were practically alone, but i would not recommend to travel here just for its sake

beautiful waterfall New Zealand
May 2019 • Friends
2 mins walk from the road and through bush.. you reach a fantastic waterfall. New Zealand paradise in its natural state.

Walk on the rocks, sit for a while breathe in the fresh air.

This is a personal favorite of mine. Close to Karangahake gorge.
Beautiful 🤗

Surprising visit
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Drove past and stopped at Owharoa Falls surprisingly that was a short easy walk to the waterfall from the offroad parking, the view is stunning and the water is clear. Is a nice spot to cool off on the summer day.
It's really worth to stop over.

Another falls

If you are within the vicinity then by all means go have a look and take a few pictures.
Its not that spectacular but worth your while to wander down for a few minutes.
Lots of different sizes borders which young and middle age use them as stepping stones along the stream .

Lovely falls, easy to get to

Well signposted just off SH2 in Karangahake Gorge is a marvellous little waterfall. We got there after a night of rain & it was running smoothly. Easy parking nearby on rail trail & then 100m walk further up road. Well signposted.
