Waterfall

Te Wairere Walkway

Beginning in the Kerikeri Basin, the Te Wairere (flowing waters) Walkway leads alongside Wairoa Stream to a spectacular waterfall.

At around 60 metres long, the purpose of this walkway is to link two sections of reserve land, forming a continuous trail from the Pa Road footbridge through a forested area to a spectacular waterfall.

The longer trail links with Kororipo Pa track, Hone Heke track, Rainbow Falls track and the Te Araroa Trail at its northern end.

Up until the mid-1950s tracks in the area were used by orchard workers, and the waterfall is mentioned in Fiona Kidman's book "At the end of Darwin Road".

Part of the track was also a historic route used by Māori and also British troops on the way to the Ohaewai battlefield in 1845.

The walkway can be accessed from the north via Alderton Drive or Alderton Park.
