The Falls themselves are just a few minutes walk from the car park and are quite dazzling with a beautiful rainbow thrown in for our visit.
The onward walk to Kerikeri Basin is mostly shaded from the sun and well worth doing for the tree ferns and birdlife which included fantails, tuis and pukekos. As quite experienced walkers, the round trip took us a little over 2 hours of which we loved every minute.
Go!

We did the walk on a rainy day so we didn't see too many people which actually made the walk really special. A good raincoat helped. It is about 5Km each way and the well-maintained path meanders through amazing forests and alongside the river the entire time. A special time communing with nature. A must do!!!

A gorgeous walk in the bush alongside the river. Easy gradient. Peaceful. A lovely slice of native NZ.

Reasonably high and good volume of water. Not world class but worth seeing if in area. Can drive to within a few minutes walk from the falls

The walk to these falls from Keri Keri is beautiful, the scenery is gorgeous.its an easy 1 hour walk to the falls but if you can't do it then you can drive there and it's an easy 5 min boardwalk there.
