Bay of Islands

Can anyone help me with a question? whilst in BoI last year, i paddled from Paihia, across the bay, under a wooden bridge and up a river to a waterfall, although it was no doubt a one shot wonder, is it runnable, access etc and can anyone tell me what it's called? might be worth a trip if I HAVE to take the wife to Paihia in the near future...

Thanks, will do....better than sitting in a Cafe with the wife - wouldn't tell her that though.

Its Haruru Falls. There is a bridge just up stream from the falls and there is easy access to the top and bottom on river left. I haven't seen anybody paddle it but id does look OK. Check out the depth at the bottom first though.
