Below are two examples from the book:
An easy paved walkway delivers the visitor from the car park on Rainbow Falls Rd to the upper viewing platforms. Walkers continue past basalt columns down to the far end of the plunge pool. Here or in the cave behind the falls are the best views of this magnificent waterfall. People exploring the cave should, however, be careful of slippery rocks. During high water it may not be possible to cross the river to the cave.As with many of New Zealand’s rivers, Kerikeri River was exploited for hydroelectric power in the middle years of the 20th century. Lloyd Mandeno designed a weir above Rainbow Falls which diverted much of the water into a canal, delivering it to a powerhouse a few minutes’ walk from Wharepoke Falls. The power station was decommissioned in 1967 and the river, and waterfalls, restored to full volume.
