The falls were beautiful and we did the one hour round trip walk which was not difficult. The area around the falls is lovely for picnics or sitting and we also saw people swimming.

Ideal to do it with kids. A family walk. The view it's outstanding. The falls are beautiful. You can take pictures from every angle since you have a round walk on the falls. The image from below is breathtaking.

Just 10 minutes out of CBD Whangarei the Whangarei Falls are quite literally magnificent and should not be missed. An easy circular walking track from top to bottom of falls with plenty of photographic opportunities.

A nice waterfall that is easily accessible from the parking lot. Some young boys were swimming in the water above the falls; families were gathered on the sand bars at the river's edge below the falls. Volunteers helped guide us into the parking lot and...More

Sorry, I don't know. Best to Google it, or ask the Whangarei I-site for info online. Good luck :)
