Rere is a small community in the northeast of New Zealand's North Island. it is located in the upper valley of the Wharekopae River in remote country in the foothills of the Huiarau Range, inland from Gisborne. It is notable for the Rere Falls and Rere Rock Slide, both on the Wharekopae River.
Rere Falls, while not very tall at 5 metres (16 ft), is a picturesque 20 metres (66 ft) wide waterfall. It is possible to walk behind its cascading curtain of water, although the rock face can be slippery.
Rere Rock Slide has been included in the NZ Automobile Association's 101 Must-do places for Kiwis. It is a smooth, natural rock formation 60 metres (200 ft) long, at an angle of about 30°, over which the Wharekopae River rushes like water in a giant water slide. It can be slid down on boogie boards or tyres.
Rere School is a Year 1-8 co-educational state primary school. with a roll of 27 as of March 2020.
