What the Haruru Falls lack in height, they more than make up for in beauty, especially when floodlit at night.
The falls are wide but relatively low at 5 meters (16.5 feet), which makes for particularly good swimming and kayaking at the base.
The falls are surrounded by holiday parks and recreation areas, making the most of the lovely riverside setting.
The Hararu Falls are on the Waitangi River on the North Island’s east coast, 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) west of Waitangi.
A scenic mangrove walk leads from the Waitangi Treaty Ground to the falls, circling the golf course.
