A very faint but beautiful rainbow can just be seen through the mist and spray of the Marokopa Falls in the Waikato, on the North Island of New Zealand. Marokopa Falls is a gorgeous waterfall attraction to visit when you are in New Zealand and the power of the water crashing over the rocks can have an almost overwhelming feeling as the roar of the water echoes in your ears.
It is about a 36 metre drop to the bottom of Marokopa Falls, and you can hike to the top and look down, although it is easier to get to the bottom of the falls so that you can look up and feel the spray on your face. It is very muddy at the bottom however, so be sure to wear some good sturdy shoes so that you don't slip on the rocks.
It is only about a ten minute walk to reach Marokopa Falls and there is a viewing platform for visitors to view the waterfall. This is also an incredibly popular area for fishing as the falls divides the Marokopa River in to two areas of fishing; there is spin fishing at the bottom and excellent trout fishing at the top.
