See and Do

Waterfall and trails

Be mesmerised by the stunning Te Wairoa Stream and Wairere Falls.

The waterfall trail provides a unique opportunity to see how land re-vegetates after a devastating volcanic eruption and how plants flourish in the sheltered, humid habitat created by waterfalls.

Te Wairoa stream flows from the Blue & Green Lakes to Lake Tarawera. Watch the wild rainbow trout swim freely in the stream.

Explore the exciting Wairere Falls

Then, if you dare, take the steps down to Wairere Falls and be thrilled as you stand in the spray as the water plunges 30 metres over the Waitoharuru Cliffs. Although the steps are challenging, our oldest visitor was 80 years old!

However, if you are not feeling up to it, you will not miss out! Take the flat track to the Waitoharuru Valley Lookout, giving you a beautiful view of Lake Tarawera.

Make sure to bring some walking shoes.

Allow 20 minutes for the trail.
