Karekare Video


The Xena Film Locations - KAREKARE

Take the road to Karekare. At Karekare you can walk down to the beach on a 200 yard walk. It is similar to Piha Beach but less residentially developed. The Watchman in the middle of the beach is another reminder of the former volcanic activity. But if you are a Xena fan you are ofcourse looking out for the falls. Leave the parking place at Karekare beach and go right and walk up for about 200m. On the left side of the road you will notice the beginning of a small track. Take it and get surprised by the beauty that awaits you at the end. These falls and the little pool in frot of it, have been used at the end of THE FURIES just before you get the closing scene with Xena and her mother. Also used in WARRIOR PRIESTESS, TRAMP just before you get to see Gabrielle and Priestess Leah walking in the forest. It has been used as a linking shot. Didn't find any scenes with it? The Piramide Rock in the sea at Karekare Beach has been inserted in a background scene which you can see at the beginning of RETURN OF THE VALKERY.
You get more to see of the track and the falls with pool on the video.
