Hi Johnny,


These are the Waitangi Falls in the Ruakituri Wilderness area.

The only way to get to these falls is to walk in. It is a no fly area.

The Ruakituri River is a popular trout fishing river.

I had a look on the W18 Topo map and it says the Waitangi falls are 72m.

It takes about three hours walk along the legal access road, from Papuni Station which is on the Ruakituri Road.

From Te Reinga to the start of the track you would be looking at an hours drive.

Thanks for the photo and info, Catherine!

We didn't get a chance to visit the Hawkes Bay and Bay of Plenty area on our recent visit this past December and January.

Based on your info, I just have to make it a priority to allocate time to re-visit Te Urewera National Park as well as see Gisborne, Whakatane, as other towns in the area.
