Waiharakeke Stream

The Waiharakeke Stream is a major tributary of the Kawakawa River, which flows into the Waikare Inlet in the Bay of Islands. The Waiharakeke catchment is large (250 square km) and is approximately 53 km long. It begins as the Horahora Stream, which originates in the Motatau Forest and meanders northwest towards Moerewa. The Horahora Stream then enters an extensive wetland where it becomes the Taikirau Stream. Two large tributaries, the Ramarama and Takapau, join the Taikirau River at Pokere. Te Tahunaakura Stream then joins the Taikirau to form the Waiharakeke Stream.

Land use in the catchment is a mixture of pine forestry, pastoral land and native forest before reaching Moerewa. The underlying geology is hard sedimentary.
