Highest drop 58m (three pitches on a 153m waterfall!)
Wairere falls is the highest waterfall in the north island officially measuring in at 153m. The descent is spectacular and exposed with great views out over native bush and the nearby Waikato countryside. Due to the exposed nature of the falls, strong wind can make life difficult.
