Whangarei Falls are beautiful but not a safe place to leave anything in the car. We left our EMPTY! car in a parking spot and had only been away for 30 minutes just to discover that 3 cars had been broken into (windows smashed in with stones) - even though it was a very busy day with lots of visitors....

We visited last week after a lot of rain so falls were very full. First time visiting the falls and we were impressed with the area. Well kept paths and picnic area at the base of the falls. Nice easy walk but does have a bit of a climb, but easy enough.

Beautiful and only 4 km from City centre. You would need to be careful with little children as some sections don't have railings to stop little ones. But it is a great and fairly easy circular walk down and around the falls.

The falls are close to town central, not far to travel to see local beauty. Lovely walks to see the falls from the top and able to walk to the bottom which gives you the impression you are in a cave like hole & can see the falls from below as they cascade into a pool. Very quiet and serene.... More

Quite a nice waterfall and the circular walk took you down to the bottom of the falls which was pretty humid! Great views.
