We worth the visit either walking from Russell (if your physically fit) or a short drive up the hill. Its a great vantage point with sweeping views of the whole area and a good picnic spot on a sunny day.

Out for a walk and saw the signs to Flagstaff Hill. A 20 minute hike up the lane followed by a series of steps before you reach the car park. Those less active can drive up and then walk the 60 metres to Sundial. Great...More

Flagstaff Hill is only a short walk from Russell and the view from the lookout is well worth the effort.

Fabulous and well worth the walk up. Amazing views of the coastal scenery. The history is fascinating.

Went up on a very hot day but worth going up as stunning views from the top. Probably wouldn't be great for people who have trouble walking or pushchairs but you can drive most of the way up and then do a short walk.

The pole wad chopper down 4 times after the Waitangi treaty was signed. A bronze plaque commemorates this. View is excellent and car park at 10m. Mind the buses.

Visited this during a 30min quick tour of Russell. Great view of Russell and Paihia. The history behind it was very interesting so it was a must for me to visit. I would recommend taking the tour at Waitangi Grounds before visiting the flagstaff cause...More

Was lucky when visited here a giant cruise ship was anchored in the bay. Interesting visiting a place of important NZ history, Short walk up the hill from town so not much fitness needed

Yes no problem, there is a small car park at the top with a short walk to the flagstaff and there is a seat too.
