Waihao River Walkway runs alongside the south bank of the Waihao River, between the popular Black Hole swimming hole and McCulloch’s Bridge.

The willow tree-cloaked walkway offers views of the nearby limestone cliffs and unique limestone outcrops. Brown trout and eels can be found in the river and there is abundant birdlife along the walkway.

The nearby Arno Basin was once a swamp from which significant quantities of Moa bones were removed.
