Ōkere Zip



Soar With Us

Born through an intimate connection with the Ōkere Awa (Kaituna river), Rotorua Ziplines has been created to showcase its mauri (spirit) and importance.

A joint venture between Rotorua Rafting and local iwi Ngāti Pikiao, this 2 hour journey will have you soaring through the air like a bird over three waterfalls - including 7m Tutea Falls - on a total of four thrilling ziplines, one swing bridge and a series of boardwalks within the Ōkere Falls forest.

Suitable for most ages and abilities, your two expert local zipline guides will keep you entertained with stories of our ancestors and our deep connection with the area.

Sip on ancient Maori tea and be apart of our reforestation mission - where we aim to plant 100,000 native trees by the end of 2025, so Ōkere Falls will thrive for generations to come.

Our zip line experience was perfect!! Our guides were awesome. They did an amazing job introducing us to the natural history and exposing us to some Māori history and culture. We loved the ziplines and the time they put into doing extra things. I would recommend this adventure to anyone!!
