Maraetotara Falls

About 40 minutes drive south of Napier is Maraetotara Falls. Close to the site of the old Havelock North Power Station. It’s a short 10 minute walk from the road. That said the access to where this photograph was taken was far from ideal. Certainly far from accessible. It’s a tiered waterfall with a height of 15 metres. When we went in the morning there was only one other couple. They had been for a swim in this crystal clear water. There’s also a view down on the falls from the left side. As we were leaving a dozen or so people turned up with a BBQ so clearly it’s a popular swimming spot with locals.
