This place is magic, with the fast flowing river, rafters plunging over 14 drops, pristine bush and easy walks !
If you are planning some white water rafting or driving to Mount Maunganui, it is well worth a stop at Okere Falls to watch rafts come over the 7 metre waterfall! Stop into Okere Falls Store afterwards for a really relaxing vibe, fabulous food, coffee and German beers
With viewing platforms that provide great views of magnificent waterfalls and white water rafters making their way down the Kaituna River, as well as geocaches and glow worms at night, there is plenty to keep kids entertained on this short, easy walk.
