“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

what a cool place to go but the carpark is small. Kids played and loved running thru bush. Took great photos and had a picnic. We try and go back for another day out.

“Beautiful Kauri Bush Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Fantastic Bush Walk through a Kauri Forest. One of the best Bush Walks I've done. The walk at the end of the track up to the top of the Falls is quite steep but the rest of the track was quite easy and the canopy walk is lovely.

“Beautiful enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Easy access and nice 20min walk around the falls make this place great location to come with children. It's quite surprising to find the waterfalls just off the road and pleasantly surprising for them to be very attractive as waterfalls come. Under the falls is a small pond with 2 families of ducks cruising and for a child this is fun enough.

Very short walk to viewing point & short steep walk to base of falls on woodland path - well worth it!

“nice falls, short walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The falls are very nice and you can access them easily with a short walk from the car. We did it with a 4 year old and she enjoyed the walk, even though there is quit a climb at the end.
