The Meeting of the Waters refers to the confluence, or joining, of the Waiwhakaiho River and Mangorei stream. It is a popular swim spot during the summer months, with rapids and a swimming hole.
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.
