Rere Falls is where the Wharekopae River transforms from a slow moving body of water to an incredible cascade more than 20 metres wide and 10 metres tall. Located 45 minutes from Tairāwhiti Gisborne, the falls is a perfect swimming and picnic spot or just sit and experience the natural beauty of this place.

Down the road natural forces have conspired to create an epic and truly unique experience in the Tairāwhiti Gisborne countryside at Rere that attracts thousands of local and visiting thrill-seekers each summer. The Rere Rock Slide is 60 metres of sheer exhilaration as the waters of the Wharekopae River race down a giant slab of moss-covered sandstone into a naturally-formed freshwater pool.
