Explore Karekare Falls

4 Lone Kauri Road - Search Nearby - Added by Liam Brown

Enjoy a freshwater swimming hole only a short walk from Karekare beach.

A stunning horsetail waterfall that is only a short, uphill walk from the Karekare beach carpark (roughly 100m from carpark to track) in the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. The waterfall is approximately 30m tall, casting a spray of clear fresh water down upon a cool swimming hole. 

The flow is strongest during winter and early spring. 

The walk itself takes roughly 10 minutes, an easy, open access, out-and-back walk.
