What travellers are saying
- Very pretty waterfall. Nice walk, slight steep track but also some steps, easily done. There's a few tracks to walk in the areaWritten 2 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Loved this more than we expected. Lots of beautiful and interesting birds. Fun feeding them and being among them. Definitely pop in if you are in the area after visiting the stone storeWritten 20 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Kemp House, surrounded by New Zealand's oldest European garden, very pretty. The Stone Store, New Zealand's oldest surviving stone building was a treat, lots of interesting and everyday items for sale.Written 2 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- My husband and I went on this short walk and enjoyed it very much. It was a rainy but warm day and the trees in fact provided some protection from the rain. And because it is fully a boardwalk, the walking itself was easy and relatively protected i.e. we weren’t walking through mud or puddles etc. The trees were magnificent and the information boards along the walk were informative and helpful to read. This was a delightful little walk.
In terms of access, we drove there from Kaikohe, eventually along Waiare Rd, the last 14 km (approx) of which was dirt/gravel. Despite the rain, the road was in good condition and we’ll graded – we just slowed as we would ordinarily on a gravel road. After we left this area we then travelled along Pungaere Rd, which was bitumen and meant for easier travelling compared with the journey to get there.Written 21 April 2023
- Spent 2 nights in our fifth wheeler there and we were blown away by their tasty food and menu selection. Even was served to our caravan. What a treat.Written 7 July 2018
- Lovely campsite, but the powered sites are very small and close to each other. These are described on the campsite map so make sure you read this so you know what to expect. Fantastic location to see kiwis at night, to fish and kayak when the tide is in. Small swimming area constrained by rocks and oysters either side. Toilets a bit ripe in the heat! Hosts were very friendly.Written 4 January 2022
- My husband and I did this walk on a rainy day – we got pretty wet but the forest was still beautiful and green, at times enhanced by the rain. The trees, bush, bird calls etc were marvellous. We did the walk to the kauri tree look out. In the wet weather the hills in the distance were shrouded but I think it was still worthwhile doing this over the short circuit walk only. There were a lot of steps and some steep sections, nearly all stable gravel, the steps edged with wood. There were a couple of seats to sit on here and there along the way, and one small bridge crossing a creek. Some parts of the track were a little wet underfoot but nothing that couldn’t be walked around. We still managed to do this in less time than the suggested hour, despite me stopping for numerous photographs and being relatively unfit. Overall, this was a lovely walk off the beaten track.Written 21 April 2023
- Visited this vineyard in Feb 2021.
What a delight.
I was wanting some different wines for our wine appreciation group.I got 3 very different products & didn't need to go anywhere else.
A white port,walnut liqueur & a grappa.[whew]
I also tried the Sailors Sky rose for myself which is like the description of ripe strawberries.Served cold it is not too sweet & very palatable.Written 28 February 2021
- Now called Sovrano Estate - authentic Italian food in a relaxed vineyard setting. Family run restaurant with superb food and great selection of local and Italian wines. Every dish was excellent - fig wrapped in prosciutto with goat cheese filling was a stand out entree and proper ragú lasagna was exceptional. Desserts equally as good especially the pana cotta and the Orange chocolate mousse. Very friendly, great service and ended up buying some take home wine as the their estate Pinot Grigio was exceptional. Definitely coming back!Written 3 March 2023
- Path was a little muddy due to heavy rain but still a very pleasant walk, my son and I both loved leaving the history as we walkedWritten 3 October 2022
- This track had everything... beauty, calling Kiwis, river, waterfalls, tropical plants, kauri trees, boardwalks, friendly home owners along the way, and it was all maintained beautifully. We hiked this as part of our endeavour to complete Te Araroa with our cockatiel, so were grateful to have this included as part of our adventure. Thank you to the person who added the wonderful wooden throne along the track - just brilliant! Ollie The-Cockatiel (my epic kiwi adventure)Written 25 April 2022
- Cruise ships dictate schedule, lovely little walk and chat with local creative types. Excellent and authentic goods a refreshing experience. Town is too cute for words, but sadly overrun with cruise ship plebes during summer months.Written 7 March 2020
- Lots of lovely things to look at with a museum and the people running it were very nice...worth seeing.Written 19 October 2020
- As the title suggest, another great visit to this boutique vineyard, this time was for their excellent Pinot Gris and Rose (of which I bought a crate each!).
Well done Kathy, you never fail to impress me.
See you soon againWritten 20 February 2017
- This little church is dedicated to St James of Compostela surprisingly. It’s a little gem of a place, tiny but with beautiful stained glas windows and a great sense of peace.Written 5 March 2020
