With the summer sun beating down on us Kiwi’s every year, there’s nothing better than seeking respite from the heat of the day than jumping into a super sweet waterhole. NZ has plethora of awesome spots and here are 5 of the best!
Blue Springs in Putaruru, Waikato
This place is something else. Pure blue water, beautiful surroundings; it’s one of Waikato’s hidden gems. The constant 11 degree temperature all year round makes for an extremely refreshing experience.
Karekare Falls in Waitakere, Auckland
Escape the rat race of Auckland and head to Karekare falls for a lovely dip or walk up the Taraire Track and check out the sweet view!
Mermaid Pool in Matapouri, Northland
This coastal marvel of rock pools and iridescent water makes for a great escape from the heat. Not a bad spot for a little snorkelling as well, you never know; you might even spot a mermaid…
Mosquito Point in Whanganui
Rope swing. Beautiful surroundings. Nuff’ said.
Bulli Point, Lake Taupo
Jump off a cliff into the majestic Lake Taupo. This favourite stomping ground among locals is guaranteed to get your heart pumping.
Dickies Flat Karanga Hake Gorge
Walk over bridge swings, through the bush and down a old gold mining tunnel that opens out into a swimming hole fed by 3 small waterfalls. Drop a few bombs off of the many surrounding rocks.
