Kaiate Falls Scenic Reserve, Te Rerekawau, is only a short distance from Tauranga, accessible from Kaiate Falls Rd. There is a parking area, toilet, and a track map on a short, narrow access road by the bridge over the Waitao Stream. The tracks are well formed, with steps in the steepest places. There may be mud on the tracks, and the rocks can be slippery when wet.
There is a height difference of about 75m between the parking area and the lowest point of the track which follows the stream.
