“Most romantic picnic date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The beautiful falls take about 2 minutes to walk to..however you can opt to go for longer walks through the rainforest. There is a picnic table located at the base of the falls and we were able to have a romantic picnic in this most picturesque location!

“Make sure you lock your car”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Whangarei Falls are pretty spectacular, especially after a huge amount of rain. However the carpark is a target for thieves, so make sure you hide your valuables...take your passport and important documents with you, and lock your vehicle.

“Worth stopping by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Its not very often you can see an amazing waterfall within steps from the car park. If you are in the area make sure you stop by it only takes 5 mins to get some wicked photos!

“Beauty within hand's reach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Pretty little waterfall with a lovely walk all around it and a picnic bench at the bottom. Very friendly couple in the parking area advising on the safety of your car. No barriers keeping you away from the best views. Do not miss - its not hard to find.

“Very nice falls, easy to navigate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The Whnagarei falls are certainly a must stop if you are in this area, as is Kiwi North. Not too big and impressive but very easy to reach with a good parking place and easy to navigate ways. To go down you will to go some stairs but the view up is surely worth it. Lots of trees around a nice pool, a good picnick stop if you have the time.

A very nice and relaxing view, a bit hard to find form the main highway but worth the detour.

Restrooms are available.
