The Wharekopae River is located in the northeast of New Zealand's North Island. A tributary of the Waikohu River (which is itself a tributary of the Waipaoa River), it rises on the slopes of Maungatapere in the Huiarau Range and flows east, reaching the Waikohu River at the settlement of Waikohu, west of Te Karaka.
At Rere, it cascades over the Rere Rock Slide, a smooth, natural rock formation 60 metres (200 ft) long, and the picturesque Rere Falls.
