All of the walking paths around Whangarei are so well maintained! And the rating is accurate. Many have toilets at the parking area too. Love to walk around Whangarei.

Highly recommend this. The walks were stunning, even for a New Zealander who has done lots of tramping. Claire was lovely to deal with, the lodge was very comfortable and the food delicious. Staying at Bream Lodge made the whole experience.
