"The Most Beautiful River!" Top 5 Page for this destination Waikato Tip by kiwi

Waikato, New Zealand: 2 reviews and 2 photos

  Waihou River
by kiwi

In the heart of the Waikato Region, South of Matamata, is the absolutely gorgeous Waihou River walk. Open to the public, you can walk alongside and view the very picturesque springs.
Between Tauranga and Putaruru, take Hwy 28, Whites Road. There is a carpark near the intersection with Leslie Rd, and another at the end of the walk, up Leslie Road, both signposted. Best to have two vehicles and leave one at both ends, or you need to walk the return to your car.
The walk is 5.2 kilometers long and takes around 1.5 hrs one way.
