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.

We walked the shorter loop track and wish we had had more time to explore more. Mind blowing to think of how those boulders were deposited. Beautiful bird-filled native bush, swimming hole and really cool walks. Felt like stepping into another world. Would have loved to have kayaked down to the harbour also. Will definitely visit again.

This was a beautiful place that you could walk as long or as short as you wanted. Magic views from the viewing platform.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
