“Great View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

The view from here is great. The flagstaff is interesting to New Zealanders. They should fly the flag from here daily.

“Best view of Bay of Islands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

It's an easy drive and a pretty stiff hike up here from downtown Russell, but the view is spectacular and is not to be missed.

“Pleasant walk with rewarding views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Is about a 15 mins walk from the down centre or 5 min drive. The walk was pleasant with fantastic views when you reach the top. Learned a little bit about the history of the flagstaff on the plaque.
