On the road between Whakatane and Ohope Beach, it is a short drive to the top, and provides a nice view of essentially all of Whakatane. Not a destination in itself, but a nice side stop if travelling between Whakatane and Ohope Beach.

Even more spectacular as the sun goes down. THe night sky is amazing and looking down on the lights of the town adds to the magic.

Gorgeous views, and the perfect spot for a picnic with the family. Watch out for the fences next to it as sometime they are on and kids can get a shock if they touch them

Worth going up to this lookout. Great for all the family. Wear shoes as some walking on grassed areas. Good place to stretch your legs and children to have a run around. Met a local up here who was keen to chat and share ideas...More

Very wet there on our visit, but mention must be made of the Statue of Wairaka on the way and Mataatua Canoe Memorial.

Great hike! Amazing views and cool beaches. Start at Seaview Road in town and finish at the West End, Ohope Beach. Return via the Bird Walk across Pohutukawa Ave

Stopped on the off chance it might be interesting... it is!!! You climb slowly up to the top point and can see for miles and there are seats to relax on. Plenty of intersting signboards and photo opportunity's that you could not get elsewhere..
