“Hidden away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is a great attraction to go and see, I had no idea it was so close to the city. It is very easy to get around and if you have the energy, you can get to the bottom and hike back up the other side.
The view from the viewing platforms are well worth it

“Whangarei Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

If in the area, well worth the short side-trip. Attractive falls in a park-like setting. Easy walk to view from above, little more robust to descend to base.

“Falls close to town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of these falls - really unusual to have such impressive falls so close to town. Also, they are surrounded by a large park which has walking paths through it. A very nice place to relax with family and friends.

“Worth a look.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

If you are on the way to the Tutukaka Coast it is orth stopping off for a look at these impressive falls. There is a nice area for a morning tea cuppa. Very impressive if it has been raining and the stream is in flood!

“Take time to enjoy the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

These falls have a wonderful view from the walking paths and great access. Pack a picnic and hike down to the picnic area at the bottom. There is also a swimming area to enjoy.
