“Much smaller than we thought”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

When we drove there we were surprised how small they were, not at all what we imagined. However we went on the dinner cruise there and it was lovely (Darryls)

“Beautiful Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Very accessible with a walk alongside these falls were tremendous and in a lovely natural setting. Adjacent to Cook's Lookout so very easy to visit if you stay there.

“Its pretty but not spectacular worth a quick visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Small falls, worth a quick visit but nothing spectacular, can do a walk in the area. A few minutes drive from Paihia.

“Definitely do it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

easy to follow path but not full of other walkers. Beautiful scenery :)
I though it would be good to walk back via the road rather than retrace my steps... big mistake! The road has no footpath and is dangerous. Three drivers stopped and offered to drive me to Piahia (it took three because at first I thought they were just being friendly).

“kinda small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

They are only a few meters tall, and not that interesting. I would go up to kerikeri and check out the rainbow falls instead, they are really beautiful.
