This was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours connecting with nature. There are a couple of walks around this area within easy access from carpark. We loved being welcomed by the volunteers who are based at the carpark and are very helpful....More

Easy parking and free entrance, although donations are welcomed. Pretty easy terrain and one of the best waterfalls in NZ. Well worth a visit. Take a picnic and sit in the green area by the side of the car park.

The falls are beautiful. You can take a local bus from a bus stop which is within 5 min walking distance of the tourist centre. Then the local bus drops you off right in front of the park. Walk to the falls is not far...More

Whangarei Falls is a picturesque waterfall, falling vertically for 26.3 metres over basalt cliffs. Three viewing platforms allow easy access to the dramatic views and a circular walk around the falls allows them to be seen from all angles.

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