KOHI POINT WALK
Mar 2020
Sadly they have ruined it!

Have happily done this walk for several decades and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately the stupid powers that be have totally ruined it by 'improving' (yeah right) the track with many many blimmin' horrible steps. Just ridiculous, and now totally spoilt what used to be a wonderful enjoyable track with wonderful views.

Unbelievable....

Fabulous Views
Jan 2021
You get stunning views over Whakatane and out to Whale Island, but on the clear day we were there, we could only just make out White Island. We drove up and the last bit is narrow and shingle but easy parking and a loop to turn at the top.

Fantastic views from this look out on the way to Ohope. Well worth the stop and get someone to take your pic, overlooking cliffs and the sea. You can see the coastline, right up to Whaka headlands and down the beach to Ohope.

Panaramic views of the coast and White Island steaming in the distance
Feb 2020
Giving an excellent view of the Bay Of plenty from a well placed lookout! there is actually a number of sites in this area, with the first placed to give the best views to the East (Best place ever for a cool sunrise!!), a second will give a better view facing West over looks the town of Whakatane and the View towards Tauranga in the distance. Whale Island view is awesome! Best spot to watch a sunset. It is also a great picnic area

Worth the Effort
Jan 2020
It's only a couple of Km up and the same back but worth doing. It is a continual climb/walk to get there but track is clearly defined - be aware if you get vertigo it may catch you out in a couple of places as it did my wife.
Views from the top are stunning - go early in morning as it gets hot later.

Amazing views, just need to find the turnoff
Oct 2019
Found this by accident. There is a sign to a ‘lookout’ off main highway coming from Whakatane but no signposting to the actual road you need to turn left onto. I ventured up it but got worried when it turned gravel through farmland with nothing in site thinking I would be reversing back. No worries, glorious views at the top and it is a sacred and historical site. Great grassy area for picnics with 360 degree views. Fyi No toilets. Really lovely spot, went there twice.

Good vantage point on the walkway from Whakatane to Ohope
Dec 2018 • Couples
You can either drive up to the parking area at the top, or walk the track from town to Ohope Beach. Great views west and east along the coast, and out to Whale Island. It's a nice picnic spot on a sunny day.
