Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A fantastic museum with plenty of local history well displayed including some great working models.
    The past kauri industry and maritime stories were very interesting and well told.
    Top marks and thank you to Ron Halliday for the excellent guided tour and well done to the other volunteers for ensuring the history of this area is preserved for future generations.
    You also get a marvellous view of the surrounding area from the museum.

    The was an amazing short walk through a small forest that is well worth getting off the beaten track for.
    There are an surprisingly large number of kauri trees in what is essentially a small wood.
    The path is well made and easy to follow.

    Beautiful lake to visit. Stunningly clear water and white sand. Very fine for at a lake and at this time of year extremely warm.
    We stayed at the Pine Camp on the edge of the lake. Huge area with both powered and unpowered sites. Extremely busy but still very quiet.

    Wonderful family experience learning about history of Dargaville and driving golf carts along disused railway track. Scones at halfway point. Knowledgeable guides.

    Small shop with the output of a great woodturner. The products are beautiful and the prices reflect that. If you are really interested in the product it is a definite place to visit as you'll find top class wood products

    Theatre was very relaxed and comfortable with large seat. Theatre had a peaceful atmosphere and not a large theatre but very friendly and staff very helpful and viewing was very satisfying. Facilities excellent as in toilets food and small cues for tickets either online or desk. Manager very informative.

    Hadn’t planned to stop but the peak is so distinctive I decided to climb it.

    It is steep and more of a scramble for the last 20 metres. It took me 11 minutes to get to the top from the car park. The stunning views are well worth the effort.

    I found it harder descending as all of the pressure is on your knees and it would be easy to slip or trip.

    The beach was beautiful.
    There were lifeguards on duty and we felt safe swimming between the flags.
    We parked up on the road and walked to the beach, but there were plenty of people who drove out and along the beach.

    Great little walk with views multiple directions. Very well maintained paths with seats. Very short drive off the main road. Highly recommended stop

    It was a recommendation to visit this working shop, and the huge kauri logs outside will catch your eye. Inside is like a museum as well, great to know of and to buy any needed gifts.

    Although the outside of the gallery is understated, the interior of this display space will blow your mind. It is a must see for when you are travelling to Dargaville. Easily accessible with good parking makes this one not to miss!

    My wife and I visited the incredible Waipoua forest in March 2018. The Yakas walk is the longest walk at 1 hour 50 mins. I went at 9am and had the place to myself-There were so many impressive Kauri trees and the trail winds up and down through different landscapes. One of the most beautiful walks I've ever done. Quite easy for anyone in good health, well made gravel track with some board walk sections. You will get really close to the Kauri's and the other stunning tree ferns, mosses and ferns

    Run by volunteers with numerous exhibits inside the building including the new mezzanine level and some machinery in the grounds outside. The displays included vintage vehicles, tractors, farm machinery and equipment, and old homewares.
    In comparison to other museums and the displays on offer, the $20 each admission seemed a bit steep for what there was to see – although we could have had one of the volunteers showing us around and explaining each exhibit.

    We headed out to the Pavilion as soon as we landed in Auckland. We were not disappointed. Really a beautiful spot, gracious and informative hostess, Christine. All three of us would go back in a minute if we could. Perfect place to from which to visit the Kauri Forest and get a sense of the fantastic beaches.
