Kaiate Falls
Walk through the forest to Kaiate Falls, where water tumbles down a ravine in a series of cascades. The swimming hole is located at the base of the lower falls.

Kaiate Falls (also known as Te Rerekawau Falls) is a 30 minute drive from Tauranga. The walking tracks are well formed, although quite steep in some places.

The main track leads to the top, and then to the base of the upper series of falls before continuing downhill to the lower falls. Another track, just below the car park, follows the stream back to the road bridge. Track junctions are well sign-posted.

Kaiate Falls is a beautiful spot to cool down on those hot summer days, or even after extensive rainfall across the region the falls come alive and a spectacle to behold. An ideal setting for explorers young and old.
