Awesome views of the Hawkes Bay area and as far as Ruapehu on a clear day. You can see the ocean... then you turn 90 degrees and you can see snow capped mountains. It's a nice (but narrow and windy drive) but it looked like there were loads of trails to bike, run or walk up too. Well worth a... More

Wonderful view of Hawke's Bay. You have to go if you are next to the area...really enjoyable. It´s just superb. We went by car, with a resident and it was great, but you have to be careful because the road is quite narrow.

This was the most majestic view I've seen anywhere, ever. The night view is amazing, all of the lights at night-time were absolutely inspiring. I went with a very old friend who's from NZ, and she was equally stricken by it.... So that's something. I also went during the day just to compare - and you can see for miles... More

Walked to the top once which was a good hike - there are numerous tracks to choose from varying in difficulty and length of time. I enjoyed the walk and it took around an hour. The views once you arrive at the top are amazing, especially on a clear day! You can also drive right to the top which is... More

This a great viewing platform to enjoy the vista of Hawke's Bay in all directions. You're in Te Mata Park so there are numerous colour-coded tracks to be hiked and enjoyed whilst there, including a wonderful stand of mature Redwoods which are always a novelty with the kids. Native birds can also been seen and heard in the park. If... More

Great 360 degree views - either walk up and down using some of the numerous interesting trails and walkways. There is also road access to the top and a nice cafe halfway up

Drove up to the top, not to many places round where you can do that. Fine day, fantastic views. Note the last bit of road is very narrow, drivers need to be polite :)
