A well-formed bushwalk with scenic lookouts over Okere River and its spectacular waterfalls. There are numerous information panels along the track, describing the human and natural landscape.
A wide grassy area beside the main carpark provides a good site for a picnic, public toilets are provided here as well. The trout pool is a popular fishing spot, and trout are often seen swimming gently against the current.
From the main lookout platform by Hinemoa's steps you can watch rafters and kayakers sweep over the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world.
Okere Falls walking track is located 21 km from Rotorua on Trout Pool road off SH 33 (the Rotorua to Tauranga highway).
Dangerously strong currents and waterfalls. Please keep to the track.
