The Waihaha River mouth on the Western Bays Road is most often reached by boat or kayak, but there is a little track..... Drive to the end of Waihaha Road and follow the bush track down the hill. From here to reach the camp site you do need to swim across the river mouth (which happens to be freezing cold), if you are organised and have some sort of floating device that keeps your stuff dry, it’s fine. Once at the camp site, you need to find the custodian to see if there is actually space to stay and they charge a small fee. If you are in a kayak the trip up the Waihaha river is worth it, the Tieke Falls at the end are cool and surrounded by a good swimming hole – a good place for a picnic!

Tongariro National Park had dual heritage status, not just for the natural stuff but also because of the huge cultural significance of this area. There are historical sites dotted around the place such as Te Porere; there is a lot of information to be found about the local legends at visitors centres. Immerse yourself
