An excellent walk up from Mackesy Bush Track, connecting to Ross Track before the summit. Back via Dobbie Track [including side track to old pa site] and Mair Park. Good vistas from the top, and friendly people enroute. Well formed and maintained paths.

See Whangarei from high
Jan 2021
The high and best lookout place to see west and south of Whangarei region. You can reach this place, either by easy way by driving up to this place, or a bit exercise way by walking through, either Dobbie Track, or Drummond Track, from Whangarei River Walk Section 1C, or from Dundas Rd through Ross Track, all are roughly 40 -60 minutes walks. There is a war monument at the top, with history plaques, and the main destination from visitors is usually the Lookout. From here you can see Whangarei Region toward south and west direction. Truly picturesque views when the sun position is low. Anyway, whatever the time of visiting, it is always worth to come to this place.

Great view of the park and the city... plus a bit of history
Dec 2019
Don't be confused: from the Mair Park, it will take about 40 minutes to go up to the top (and not 40 meters as we wrongly thought LOL). Very nice walk throughout the park and great view when you finally make it to the top! Worth the walk and the calories (that you can easily get back when walking back to town!!!)

Wide vistas of Whangarei
Oct 2019 • Couples
You can drive or walk (c. 60 minutes; different routes to choose from) to the top of Parihaka. If driving, the carpark is at the end of the road, unless in a camper van or bus. Then about 5 minutes climbing the steps to the top. A useful diagramma and legend are provided to help identify local features and locations. There are helpful panels to give historic background information. Well worth the effort. Not very wheelchair friendly, unfortunately.

Great view of the city
Mar 2019 • Friends
This memorial offers a great view of the city. It's just a very short walk up from the car park. The gate is locked after certain hours, so please check the time if you get there late. There are also walking tracks around the area if you want a bit of exercise.

Great view. Nicely done
Mar 2019 • Solo
It's been a few years since I did the walk up here from Mair Park. It's been done up nicely. The walk is great for exercise or just as a slow amble to commune with nature. Talking to people, so many aren't even aware this and the walks are here. It's worth the walk, or you can drive up to do the look from the top

Just a dream of a view!

This was a beautiful walk. Easy going track. Unfortunately not accessible for wheelchairs. Steps up to the lookout and walking tracks.
Three different walking tracks to choose from.
Beautiful views of the whole of Whangarei.
