About
Walks from 30 min to 3 hrs, take you through beautiful subtropical rainforest, under, over and around the boulders. Bring the kids and hunt for rock animals, fairy houses and enjoy the native flora and fauna. You can hire kayaks and paddle down the boulder river all the way to the Hokianga harbour. Our low key campsite offers visitors a chance to stay in our beautiful, secret corner of New Zealand. Our B&B at the Boulder Bach sleeps 3 and includes fresh homemade sourdough bread. Whilst you are here book a night walk and see glow worms, cave wetas and maybe even a kiwi.

Tremendous Example of Unique NZ Tourism Experience - Congrats to Graeme & Paula
Apr 2021
We are very fortunate that Graeme & Paula have opted to share their unique landscape with us.

Facilities are excellent . Base area has a great depth of information on flora, fauna & geology.

Walking trail has regular informative information panels

Highlight for us was kayaking amongst the boulders & then out to harbour. Viewing the boulders from water level was an almost other worldly experience

Congratulations to Graeme & Paula for creating a world class accessible adventure experience

TIP: Go on weekend or a holiday to enjoy coffee & cake at the cute Boulder Cafe caravan

Well worth the detour
May 2021 • Couples
We were all totally impressed with the whole experience, from the great information at the start and on the way. Then if course there are the formations which is why everyone comes - they are quite amazing. The walk to the lookout puts it all in perspective and is well worth the effort.

Magical Wairere Boulders
Apr 2021 • Friends
Wairere Boulders are truly magical. From every part of the safe but adventurous Boulder Loop Walk through gorgeous native bush, these magnificent rocks, in some cases featuring a little creative licence, will continuely surprise & delight you. A wonderful place to bring the children who will find the magic everywhere. An historical guide to the area is provided through text & pictures. And a picnic lunch afterwards in warm autumn sunshine was the icing on the cake.

Interesting and great place to explore
Apr 2021
Lovely area to explore - HUGE boulders with a fascinating history, little treasures for the kids to find, and as long a walk as you want to embark on. We only walked for about an hour (still recovering from the Cycling) and it was informative and interesting.
A lovely cup of tea and delicious Flapjack at the end in the sun made the adventure complete.
Bring your bathing togs for the natural pools.

Must visit if you're ever in Northland
Jan 2021
Fantastic walk and we absolutely loved the little challenge given to us. Unfortunately short on time as we had other places to go to...but will certainly be coming back for the Magic Rock!

Special & unique - B&B/boulder walk combo
Jan 2021 • Family
What a find!! Remote, scenic B&B run by a keen Scottish couple with a passion for making the most of the land & creating beauty & awe for all ages. Just be prepared for a long uphill cycle on the gravel driveway upon arriving at the B&B! Kids were delighted with the boulder walk, which took us in all directions with surprises at every turn, including stream & waterfalls, trails underneath giant boulders, fairydoors & rock creatures. Wish we'd had time to explore further - Children pleaded to stay another night. Breakfast was nicely presented, with homemade bread, jams & granola. Worth watching both sunset & sunrise over the valley & out to the Hokianga Harbour. Highly recommend as a start or end point to the Twin Coast Cycle Trail, or for anyone interested in spending a few days exploring Northland.
