Eastern side of Lake Ohakuri
The hot pool and waterfall are both accessed by boat from the Waikato River, downstream of Orakei Korako and the naturist club. The entrance can be difficult to find the first time.
The hot pool and waterfall is a 10 minute walk upstream through the chasm known as “The Squeeze”.
This pool is used and maintained by the members of the naturist club so this is not a suitable venue if you disapprove of nudity. Out of respect to the naturists and the private landowners which boundary the stream, please stay within the stream area and do not cross the boundary land. Please respect the safety of this area by not bringing glass bottles.
Tour groups visit this area twice daily around 11am and 2pm so avoid the busy times. [Lisa Janek , New Zealand]
This stream is only accessible by boat and can be tricky to find.Once you've located the entrance, there is a narrow chasm to negotiate then you can walk further upstream to the waterfall. The Rotota Sun Club (nudist group) maintains the hot pool at the top of this waterfall which you get to enjoy. Please respect all public users and do not bring glass bottles! [Lisa, NZ]
