    Absolutely wonderful day, kayaking to the canyon, worth every penny. Our guide Josh had a great balance of humour, fun banter and intriguing information.

    What an amazing park just 20 minutes away from Tauranga. Beautiful lake with a lakeside walkway and many picnic spots. There are different paths you can take and very picturesque landscapes to enjoy. It is especially colourful in Autumn. There is a cafe on site. Use GPS to help you exit the park, the one way road is a bit confusing.

    It was a pleasure to do this event, It takes about 30 mins being older couple but youngsters can do much faster. Clean air and atmosphere.

    One of my regular walks and it never gets old....particularly gorgeous after a good amount of rain. Can be slippery in parts, but not unmanageable, and steep but absolutely worth it.

    Mainly flat easy walk. Enjoyed the one km tunnel. Do not need a touch.
    Very popular walk and more than one walk so plenty of choose for all groups.

    The beach was quite clean and the sand is white and enjoyable. Nice to walk to Moturiki Island on a well laid walkway. Unfortunately most Cafe's and eateries close by 3pm.

    Since this is a quarry park, most of the paths are muddy and uneven. We went there when the rain just stopped.
    The flowers, trees and the garden are well manicured. My daughter enjoyed the Butterfly garden and it is educational. The rose garden smells terrific. There’s a garden with Braille system and they call it Sensory garden.
    Some parts are covered. The pond has a lot of insects.
    Parking is quite plenty. Toilet is fine and this park has water fountain too.
    There’s a lookout point which is a good spot to rest and talk some nature’s photos.
    Overall, this Garden is good place to visit.

    Takes 1 hour to see everything in this park.

    Great that they are saving New Zealand's heritage instead of bowling it. A very informative, guided tour. Beautiful buildings and garden.

    I wasn't sure if i could do the track because of an injured leg.
    But i am so glad i did, it was an easy walk worth taking.

    Arrived with party of 4, Sunday lunch time. Great spot, nice selection of ciders and enjoyed the tasting concept of choosing 4 cider flavours. This was good value.
    Food was good, outdoor setting nice with great views and like the fact you can bring the dog. For a casual Sunday afternoon outing with friends, very nice!

    As adveritsed. Reasonably priced with lots of animals to pat, especially being able to put the toddler in the cage with the rabbits and lamb. The animals were mostly friendly and eager to be fed. Approximate times and/or distances would be helpful so you know how long it would take for the bushwalk, to go to the lookout etc.

    A little bit out of town but worth a drive for the amazing view. The day we visited was a bit grey but on a clear day it would be amazing

    Went as a group with a group of 14 year olds (plus an adult!) and had so much fun. The first couple of courses set you up for the harder levels and give you confidence the higher up the tree you go. Lots of laughter all the way ( to hide the fear!) and staff really helpful. Will definitely be back!

    Pilot bay is where we go to eat fish and chips on the beach! so relaxing and peaceful. The borad walk is nice and easy to walk along and there is the hot pools, shops and ice creams close by! not to mention u can walk round the mount nice and easy and there's close parking to the water.
