Gorgeous falls, beautiful after rain and in bright summer. Walk down the track to the base of the falls, wander along the river under native bush. Gorgeous spot for a walk or run. Breathe the tree breath and go home refreshed.

Take the track from AH Reed Memorial Park and to the Kauri tree canopy walk too. Much more enjoyable than parking at the falls car park. A walk through native forest and farm land along the river. Easy walking

Wonderful place to take your visiting friends. Beautiful picnic areas, nice well kept toilets. You can walk for as long or as little as you like, so great for all ages young and older. It’s always beautiful but more spectacular after heavy rainfall.

Sorry, I don't know. Best to Google it, or ask the Whangarei I-site for info online. Good luck :)
