One of the area's most popular photo opportunities, picturesque Rainbow Falls cascade over hard basalt rock into a shimmering pool. The 27 m (88.6 ft) fall is just a short walk away from the parking lot, but you can extend your visit with a number of longer scenic walks starting from this point. Bring a bathing suit along so you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool waters below. If the sun is shining, you'll see how the waterfall got its name.

  • Super fun and easy walk for the family. Extra fun if you go behind the waterfall, but carefully cuz it’s slippery! Went first time in December 2019 and have been back December 2021.

  • Overwhelming amazing Spectacular display of nature Easy walk from the car park, on a rainy day it really goes. My partner will be back on a more calm day

  • Our family love coming here. We do the walk from the stone store to the falls often and always enjoy it. Great swimming spots along the way. So many special spots along the walk.
  • A must do when visiting Kerikeri. Amazing waterfall(s) and brisk, beautiful stream. Cool, shady bush walk with native bush all around. Do not miss this. It’s one of the most walked tracks in NZ, but never very crowded at all.
