The Motu River flows through the Raukumara Range, southeast of the Bay of Plenty on the North Island of New Zealand. We kayaked and rafted in three days from Motu Falls to the ocean and spotted several pairs of the very rare Blue Duck on our way down. Flows were pretty low, but good to go. 10 cumecs at the put in (waitangirua gauge) / 60 cumecs at the take out (Houpoto) neon.niwa.co.nz/neon-network.aspx

Shuttles to the put in and pick up at the take out were arranged with Bing Dain from Opotiki.
