Waterfall Nature / Park
One of the area's most popular photo opportunities, picturesque Rainbow Falls Walk cascade over hard basalt rock into a shimmering pool. The 27 m (88.6 ft) fall is just a short walk away from the parking lot, but you can extend your visit with a number of longer scenic walks starting from this point. Bring a bathing suit along so you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool waters below. If the sun is shining, you'll see how the waterfall got its name. Our Kerikeri tour planner makes visiting Rainbow Falls Walk and other Kerikeri attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • . (03/2017) A big and quite high single drop waterfall. The location is maintained very well with good safety measures put in place. Stunning views. There are different walks ranging from easy to moderate including from straight from The Stone Store to the falls. The easy waterfall walk includes beautiful vantage points to stop and enjoy the the views. Spacious carpark.
  • Great spot! You can walk behind the falls from the right side or cross the river and walk behind them that way. Not too difficult and you get great views!
  • Of the waterfalls in the area I'd say this is up there with the most spectacular. The walk up from the stone store makes it all the more sweet also
  • Cool waterfalls. We went there after a typhoon day so the waterfall really that so nice but its a cool waterfall though. Worth going and see.
  • Long but beautiful walk from the parking lot. Well worth it. A little cold in the water but do not forget swimwear !! 😃
