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 !

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
