Haruru Falls, Paihia

3.6
#1 of 6 in Nature in Bay of Islands
When in Paihia, use the opportunity to take a break and immerse yourself in the scenic natural surroundings of Haruru Falls. While at 5 m (16 ft) the waterfall may not be one of the tallest in New Zealand, it's definitely one of the easiest to reach. After a short walk over a well-maintained trail through lush nature, you'll be able to enjoy the views of the waterfall and relax on one of the benches. Despite not being very tall, the waterfall is fairly wide and carries a lot of water, especially during the colder months. If you're visiting when the weather is chillier, make sure to bring waterproof clothes to protect yourself from the spray.

  • This was a nice little stop on a tour we took through Pahia and KeriKeri. The water level was low but it was a short walk from where our guide dropped us.  more »

  • It's a kiwi habit and a very beautiful place with some life activities like wild chickens and rabbits. There's also some paths to take a walk into the nature. The falls are not big but beautiful with some tables to have a picnic. Great option to spend some quality time.
  • Nice walking track. Waterfall was really nice. Be careful when entering car park as there was free range chickens wondering around.
