Beautiful waterfall
Jul 2021 • Couples
This is a must see, moderately easy walk on the loop track and well worth the effort. Plenty of stairs but well spaced. The walk back up is a little challenging but there are stopping places to catch your breath.

Trip down memory lane

I lived in Whangarei until age 10 and remember many trips to these falls.
In fact they were more impressive than I remembered.

Great place
Apr 2021
It was our first time visiting the falls and it was great. The area is clean, safe and just overall nice! The only thing I would change is the direction boards and maybe add more, but this is just me. People should really make an effort to visit this place.

Walk the loop and enjoy the magnificent trees, bush and base of the falls. Take some lunch and a camera. Lunch can be eaten at the top or base of the falls - whatever tickles your fancy. Take your time. Great parking with toilet facilities and park grounds at top. Pushchair friendly on one side.

Beautiful setting and lots of photo opportunities
Apr 2021 • Family
We visited on a beautiful autumn day with plenty of nice clean water running down the waterfall. The loop track around the falls takes about 20 minutes and is reasonably easy going. We had a pram and while we had to lift up a few stairs we got around no worries. Some beautiful spots for photos and viewing platforms also. Highly recommend if you’re in Whangarei.

Must see Falls
Apr 2021 • Couples
The locals have gone to town in ensuring the falls and surrounds are easily accessible and in pristine condition. Well worth a stop, perhaps a picnic, while in this neck of the woods

Loved it
Mar 2021 • Couples
We really loved the falls and were welcomed by an ambassador who told us heaps about the paths. There are lots of barbecue tables where you can picnic and a number of viewing platforms to get good views. We walked along paths by the river leading from the falls to the AH Reed Memorial Kauri Park which was certainly worth seeing too. All paths were well maintained. A real treasure at the edge of an urban area.

Pleasant walk
Dec 2020 • Family
Relaxed, easy place. Minimal fitness required. They open extra car park with volunteers on site during peak times.
