Free fun

All you need is togs & an inner tube for some great old fashioned fun created by nature. Went as a kid just as much fun with my kids.

Well worth the visit, no words really explain the thrill of powering down the Rere Rockslide. Just be careful walking on the rocks up the top as they are extremely slippery and dangerous

Well worth a visit if only to watch the youngsters sliding down the rocks and into the pool below. Will vary a great deal depending on the amount of water going down the slide.

Great little swimming spot and fun for all ages. We went on a rainy day and had the place to ourselves so was an added bonus. The water quality may not be the best but toughen up, you will be fine and have an enjoyable time. Well worth the drive, must do activity.

Sadly it was too cold to try out the slide but there were lots of backpackers making the most of this unique spot. Not sure if our young kids would've wanted to do it as it looked a bit risky. A cool rock formation that is well worth the visit.

The constantly running water of the Wharekopae River has smoothed over the rocks of this 60 metre-long natural water slide and boogie boards, inflatable mattresses and inner tubes can be used to slide down on. If you’re unsure about taking the plunge and racing down it, sit back and watch the locals for a while to see where the best... More

Awesome way to spend a day for young and not so young. Bring something to use as hurts if you go bare - also hurts if you fall off boogie board. Great fun when you hold on tight!

I saw this on the internet as something to take in when visiting the Gisborne area and it was well worth the detour. I was a kid again as soon as I saw it and if it wasn't for my wife holding tight to my metaphorical leash I would have been throwing children behind me & careering down the rock... More

Once you finally get here after a bit of a trek it a great place of beauty. I was told by a local to visit here as you regularly see the kids sliding off the rock but we did not see this but we were happy that we did see this lovely place. On the day we went the weather... More

Would be a great experience if the water were not contaminated. Such a shame for such a great spot. Lots of families having a great time but I was concerned about the contaminants in the water with grandchildren possibly ingesting.
