Oyster River Potholes

The Oyster River Potholes are a must see! With some of the clearest water you’ll experience, this North Island secret is one worth sharing!

Location:

  • Upper Potholes, (shown in the image) Off the inland Hwy 19, just off from the Cranberry Rd Exit. Drive down a couple of logging roads, park, and walk down to the bowls.
  • Lower Potholes; this is the swimming hole section with a fast running river, not shown in the image.  Be aware that this is a residential road with local residents, and private property.  We ask that you respect their privacy and not to trespass. 

 

Please take your rubbish with you.  These pot holes are not maintained by city operations, and rely on the responsible use of those that enjoy them.

Please note: Hazards present due to the terrain, so be cautious.
