Kawerau & Tarawera

Rafting

The Tarawera River through Kawerau offers a beginners section, a challenging grade 2 slalom facility and a venue for competitive social and elite rafting competitions. There are excellent viewing platforms with easy access points for the coach, competitors or just the passionate white-water enthusiast. The access point for the start of this run is just upstream of Firmin Field off Waterhouse Street.
