Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Easily accessed and plenty of parking at Kaniwhaniwha Reserve. We had family group - 3 1/2 yr, 6yr parents and grandparents. Easy walking. Caves just the right length for the little ones. We had taken aqua boots and torches (the head torch was the best as hands free) which made the cave adventure better. Also packed kiddiwipes and towel for after the caving. Wouldn't advise using back carriers for toddlers/babies as some people were attempting

its an easy walk admiring nature, we took some overseas visitors. the cave was cool, definitely a head torch recommended. you can use your phone but if you like your hands free. your shoes might get wet so either waterproof ones or get dirty. its just a short cave and easy 2 mins through. grass areas for a picnic, swimming hole for the brave. The water is cold! some shallow areas for kids to just have a little paddle or just put your feet in.

We made it as far as the tallest Kahikatea tree which is a great spot for a bit of packed lunch! Wasn’t a great fan of the caves, being 6’4” wasn’t fun inside such a confined space but glad I did it!

I visited as part of a group of bikers out for a Sunday ride. We phoned ahead to ensure the boysenberry fudge was going stocked up (turns out it was worth the call). It was a great ride and a great lunch served without fuss to our large group.

Planning to return to do the walks and caves.

Great to get outdoors. Easy track and lovely to walk. Didn’t go into the caves as we didn’t have a torch, but plenty lining up to do it.

A very nice walk that has many things to see. Streams, camp ground/picnic areas, large trees (NZ tallest native tree), caves and small bridge crossings. The large tree is an optional extra walk on the side. Good signage too.
