I visited this several times when I was younger and it was fantastic - when it used to be free. Since being returned to Ngati Rangiwewehi in a 2015 Waitangi Treaty Settlement, they now charge a ridiculous $18 per person. The tracks and walkways are already...More

Right next to the reserve is the Hamurana Reserve Playground and it is a lovely place to swing on the swings and watch the black swans - a perfect family respite that is free to the public.

We used to love coming to this place and would always recommend it to friends, especially those who were visiting from overseas. It’s beautiful. We haven’t been here in a while so we were shocked to see that they now charge an $18 entrance fee....More
