If you’re heading north, why not grab an ice cream and stop in at this quintessential kiwi swimming spot in Taihape. This river is characterized by well-defined pools and is also known for brown trout fly fishing.
There are walking tracks around the Hautapu River and rest area facilities which include showers and toilets.
Tourists will be greeted with kilometres of native bush, giant redwoods and towering papa cliffs surrounding the river.
A great place to stop on your camper or caravan journey.
