The Waihirere Falls walk starts from Waihirere Domain, which is a classic Tairawhiti experience in itself. At the northern end of the domain, the walk follows the stream up the valley. It's one of the few native bush walks closely accessible to Gisborne. Once you get to the falls then it's a fun and relatively simple rock climb to the top - great little trip with the kids.

A nice easy walk, great for doing with children - only about 20 minutes walk to a small waterfall. Feels like a special place.
