Owharoa Falls, Karangahake Gorge
Actually a series of three waterfalls, Owharoa Falls are a couple of kilometres' drive away from popular Karangahake Gorge. The first and third waterfalls are easily accessible, while only the top of the second one can be seen from the road. Unique surroundings and the beauty of the falls make these waterfalls one of the must see sights in this part of the country. This scenic spot is easily accessed from the main road, a few metres up Waitawheta Road, and opposite the entrance to The Falls Retreat. It is a popular swimming spot with locals however care must be taken as it is prone to strong currents and hazardous features such as snags and slippery rocks and deep holes.
