... Many of these people believed that a water monster or taniwha resided in the pool below the falls and this belief was taken very seriously.

Tourists can drive to Paihia on the North Island of New Zealand, pack a lunch and enjoy the day wandering through the trails or drive to the car lot and walk in. Whichever route you choose, you will find the beauty of the Haruru Falls amazing and very picturesque.

A boardwalk follows the river which you can stroll along to explore the landscape of Haruru Falls.When the falls are not running at full force, you can stand along the rock ledges to admire their beauty but during the spring or after a storm, the rocks are blanketed by the rushing water. After enjoying Haruru Falls, head back to the town of Paihia where you will find beautiful beaches and a place to stay for a night or two while on the North Island of New Zealand.
