About

The Grade 5 Wairoa River is renowned for having some of the best white water action in New Zealand.

Kaituna Cascades run the whole of the river including the bottom three rapids and the lower waterfall!

Hold on for dear life as you tackle 'Mothers Nightmare' which has a technical grade 4 rock garden, closely followed by a tight 2 metre drop.

Experience the thrill of 'The Rollercoaster' - consisting of the aptly named 'Devils Cauldron' and the breathtaking 'Bottom Drop'.

Feel the rush of 'The Waterfall' which has an awesome 3 metre drop into a churning pool of white water through the Wairoa Rivers boulder-strewn rock canyon.

Topped off with a small lunch and refreshments at the river.
