Hatea River

The Hātea River begins as the Waitaua Stream just north of Kamo, and flows southeast through Tikipunga and Mair Park into Whangarei Harbour. This short river, 17 km long, has a mixture of land uses in the catchment including urban, native forest and pastoral land.

This catchment has been designated a 'priority catchment' by Northland Regional Council through its Waiora Northland water quality programme. For further information please refer to www.nrc.govt.nz/waiora.

 

The Hātea River has generally good water quality. Whangarei Falls is a popular swimming site but periodic faecal contamination from wildfowl and livestock can occasionally make the falls unsuitable for swimming.
