An easy and interesting walk through native bush. You can just do the short stroll through AH Reed Kauri Park itself which is really gorgeous and easy on boardwalks and gravelled tracks. Or make it a longer hike - cross Whareora Road to the Parahaki...More

Put on your walking shoes and take a stroll through beautiful mature bush. If you have a couple of hours follow the track to the gorgeous Whangarei Falls and back. The boardwalk through the Kauri is short but lovely, the walking tracks beautiful. Love it...More

Very serene park. We had a lovely walk but couldn't find the waterfall - didn't mind as we met a really interesting Kiwi Yugoslav man who regaled us with plenty of interesting stories. He walks there daily so stop and have a yarn with him...More

We were in Whangarei for quite some time, due to our boat's servicing requirements, and was really surprised to find this wonderful 2+ km trek through gorgeous forest. Not arduous at all, but a lovely way to escape mentally. The falls were lovely too. Very...More

This park is great. Not too far out of town. Lovely pathways and boardwalks through re-generating Kauri and other N.Z. bush. (Shame we wont be around in a couple of hundred years to see it!!). Lovely vegetation and meandering stream. Thoroughly recommended.

A great walk, take the path and walk up high amongst the Kauri trees and take the track further along and visit the Whangarei falls and return via the track to the carpark

No, not that I know of BUT you can walk to this park along a lovely pathway from the town centre. It starts by the Whangarei swimming pool, follows the Hatea river through lovely bush / forest and comes out on Whareora Road... More
