The Whangarei Falls walk is definitely a must activity for solo, family, friends or other travellers. The walk is beautiful and cool since it is under the trees. The waterfalls are also lovely to see.

A nice place to visit for an hour or two or even to stretch the legs. A decent size waterfall to be interesting and unlike many its easy access and short walk from car park. Seem popular spot.
