We came mid rains and the falls were impressive and very loud. Car park was a bit flooded but passable and beware if you are afraid of chickens as they are loads around.

Haruru Falls is just another waterfall. There is nothing spectacular or awe inspiring about it, and most of the time, the water has a muddy look to it. We have seen it after a storm, and it has more attraction then due to the major...More

After all the rain the last few day the falls were brown. Not too exciting but still epic. A tonne of water so pretty amazing. Got chased down by a crazy rooster.

No overnight camping at the car park that I could see when visited last week. There is the Falls Motel & Waterfront Campground on Puketona Road, perhaps look up their website if you’re still interested in a paid camp site...
