One of the Hastings District’s best kept secrets, Maraetotara Falls is a hidden natural treasure situated between Havelock North and Waimarama Beach. Approximately 15 minutes’ drive from Havelock North Village, the Falls stretch about 1km long with a pretty waterfall at the top end and a heritage power station at the other.
Enjoy a dip in the crystal clear water or take the plunge by swinging from the tree rope if you’re feeling brave! If you’d rather keep out of the water then take a walk along the track following the trickling stream. Both the waterfall and the walking track can be accessed from three different points on Maraetotara Road, each with its own small carpark area.
