The Waingongoro is a ring plain river that drains an extensively developed agricultural catchment. This seasonal swimming spot is located behind Taumata Park, in Eltham.
Please note that water quality can change depending on weather. Don't swim if the water is murky or smells unpleasant. Taranaki Regional Council advises not to swim within three days of heavy or prolonged rainfall, even at sites that usually have good water quality.
