Just Excellent Views
Apr 2019 • Couples
Another excellent place to enjoy the landscape of Whakatane, from this lookout you can see mostly from northwest to the southwest of Whakatane region, the most notable features is Putauaki, or known with other name Mount Edgecumbe, a volcanic cone rises to 820m above the sea level, at the far horizon. At the front landscape, most of Whakatane Township and Region are spread out beautifully, excellent photographical objects to be captured, amazing views. Two ways to reach this place, an easier way by car to the limited parking spaces near the starting point at 5 minutes’ walk and then climbing through the track 5-10 minutes to the top, to the lookout. Or a bit exercise way by walking start from the city centre behind the huge rock, Puhaturoa Rock, and then step uphill through Whakatane Vertigraph, a 43 horizontal panels on vertical glazed tiles, named Te Mana o Papa, to the starting point is at the end of Vertigraph. Just remember, because this Lookout is positioned facing to the northwest, its best photos captured toward Mount Edcumbe and Whakatane Town is when the sun is rise, at the early morning.

Gently climb, great views

The climb up the stairs is very gently, and there are views all the way up. Well worth the effort to climb up for the view of Whakatane.

Amazing Views

Visited this lookout when we were in Whakatane. Just a short walk from the carpark and you are rewarded with amazing views of the town centre below and out towards Moutohora Island.
