Swimming at Okere Falls
While not a popular swimming spot due to the swift current (some sections of the river being too dangerous to swim in), you can jump the water below Okere Falls. Rambling Feet describes the spot where you can jump into the Kaituna River from a tree ten metres above in “Taking the Plunge at Okere Falls“.
Getting to Okere Falls
The carpark for this waterfall is located 21km from Rotorua at the start of Trout Pool Road (off the SH 33).
It’s only a 5min walk to the viewing platform for this waterfall; the Okere Falls walking track is a 2.1km loop (allow an hour) which passes all three waterfalls.
