Lower Ngakawau Gorge
|River mouth||Karamea Bight|
|Length||19 kilometres (12 mi)|
The Charming Creek Railway line used to run alongside Ngakawau River in the Lower Ngakawau Gorge, transporting coal from mines in the Ngakawau River catchment area. The disused bush tram track now forms a section of the Charming Creek Walkway. 3 km into the gorge, Mangatini Stream joins Ngakawau River over the 25 m tall Mangatini Falls.
The Ngakawau Riverwatch environmental group formed in 2001 to address the water pollution in the river.
