Ruahine Dress Circle

Day Use Area

5 from 1 user.


Lagoon Road, off Ruahine Road, North Island.


Popular picnic area and swimming spot. The Mangawharariki stream, which flows through The Dress Circle, is made up of two types of papa rock. During floods, the water has corroded the soft papa creating large holes. Over the years there have been several waterfalls corroded away because of this action. There is a permanent waterfall from a side stream by the swimming hole, but a little further down stream can be found another deeper and wider fall. Strictly no camping, tenting or freedom camping. Strictly no fires. No toilet or rubbish facilities available. Take away all rubbish. Leave only your footprints.
