Great walk with stunning views. They are currently doing track improvemts so closed some days between now and early May but we went early enough and it was open. Well worth the steps for the spectacular views!

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....

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.

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

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.

This is one of the best lookout I have ever seen. Easy to reach. Reasonable parking. Not much crowded.

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.
