Rocky Stream is highly modified over much of its length, beginning in the northern Papamoa Hills in Papamoa ignimbrite, Minden rhyolite and associated fluvial deposits before flowing through peat and fixed foredunes. The stream then turns west from State Highway 2 and flows into the eastern extreme of Rangataua Bay in Tauranga Harbour.  Land use is a mixture of indigenous and exotic forest and pasture, with some horticulture.


Water quality is monitored at Mangatawa Bridge and the site shows a significant increasing trend in nitrogen and relatively high suspended solids levels.
