Easy access, good history background provided, visit in connection with the Stone House. Cafe at the Stone House was a delight.

Nice easy waterfall to access, 3 different lookouts from the top and bottom on the fall. Between a 2-5 min walk to the lookouts. Definitely worth a visit.

Small walk to the falls. Unfortunately we couldn't go for a swim because the water was polluted. Good viewing decks

The rainbow waterfall in kerikeri is easily accessible by foot from the carpark. There is three viewing platforms giving different view's of the waterfall. It lives up to its name as constantly a rainbow can been seen from all views.

Impressive falls following the heavy rains. Tremendous roar, very muddy and murky water. The swimming pond was closed due to the high water.

Short easy walk to several viewing platforms looking over the spectacular waterfall. Wide path the whole way so it’s pram friendly!

We visited late afternoon after driving through heavy rain all day. It was quite a spectacle to see the water raging over the falls and down the river. It was more like muddy falls than rainbow falls but quite exhilarating.

We have visited Rainbow Falls a few times. It's a great spot and looked amazing today after 24 hours of rain! We walked the track today to the Stone Store. Nice walk and easily manageable for most ages of average fitness.
