Maraetotara Falls, Havelock North

Maraetotara Falls Maraetotara Falls
  • Heritage short easy walk
  • Waterfall
  • Swimming hole

Instagram star with #maraetotarafalls. Very popular as a picturesque waterfall, freshwater swimming at the base of the waterfall with a heritage walk. Find the former Havelock North Power Station in its pretty setting. In 1922 the Havelock North Borough Council built a dam on top of Maraetotara Falls to create a head for a hydro-electric power station. A tree-shaded walk leads 10 mins upstream to the falls and 20 mins downstream through limestone scenery, past the old turbine house and a surge tower. The track is a short easy walk. Overnight camping in self-contained vehicles is permitted. No seats, public toilets.
