Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Easy access to most platforms to view and take photos. A good swimming area at the bottom. I enjoyed being able to get several views of these falls and wish I had had my swim gear with me.
Parking was easy, too.

Easy walk from the carpark - a minute to the first lookout and another minute to the second. Take a longer walk (maybe 5 minutes) to the pool at the base of the falls for a really good photo. You can swim in the pool under the falls as well. No cost. The walking is on well defined tracks and isn't very difficult.

Very pretty waterfall. Nice walk, slight steep track but also some steps, easily done. There's a few tracks to walk in the area

These are just a short drive from Kerikeri and well worth visiting especially in this year of such heavy rainfalls. There are three viewing levels through beautiful bush tracks kept in immaculate order. The rainbow added to the beauty.

Beautiful views in a peaceful setting; good parking & toilets available. Very short & easy walk on paved paths to the 3 viewing platforms at the top, even for my 86-yr old mother with a walker.

Lovely spot to visit with easy free parking and bathroom facilities. The views over the falls, particularly after heavy rain, are superb. Take the footpath to the left and you'll soon be down at the lower level looking up at the falls. Take a walk along the path further through cool woodland by the rivers edge and you won't be disappointed.

Recommended to us by a local and so pleased we took his advice. Short walks from the free car park through lush trees and ferns to the viewing points of the falls and pool. We were lucky to see the falls in full flow after recent heavy rain and to see the rainbows too as it was a lovely sunny day.

We walked to the falls alongside the river starting at the stone store. On a very hot day it was lovely walking under the shade of the trees. The walk took the full hour there and a full hour returning to the carpark. The falls didn’t disappoint, lots of ways to view them and picnic spots if you don’t mind sitting on the grass. Great walk for all ages
