Mahuia Rapids

Mahuia Rapids

Along SH 47 (the Volcanic Loop Highway), close to its intersection with SH 48, you will see a sign for Mahuia Rapids. It is worth a short stop – there is no track there, but the parking bay is very close to the breathtaking rapids and their never-ending white noise. The surrounding bush is also particularly lush, including some interesting moss-covered rocks at the first car park. Note the ‘road’ leading to the parking bays is more along the lines of a deeply pot-holed mud track and may not be suitable for all vehicles.
