The Mokau River

The Mokau River.

The Mokau hears very favourable comparison with the more famous Wanganui, and it has this advantage over the latter, that the beautiful scenery commences practically from the mouth. It is navigable for small steamers for about 23 miles, to the spot where coal is mined and shipped. Fair accommodation can he obtained at the township near the mouth of the river, and a launch may be hired to convey parties up the river. By hiring a Maori canoe and a crew the river may be ascended many miles further to the Wairere Falls, a beautiful spot, passing Totoro, a deserted Maori settlement which at one time was an important place.
