“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Had been through Cambridge many times en route to different activities but never stayed for too long. We had a few extra minutes today and explored Cambridge surrounds - this was unexpected and quite wonderful- good walks and lots of birdlife.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 via mobile

It's surprising that many of us don't know what is down the road 10 minutes away. I highly recommend you visit it. It's easy walking, accessible and well maintained

“Unknown Paradise!”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

I live just below Maungakawa and walk up there most days. The area is relatively unknown, even to locals! Fabulous views, lovely bush walks, lots of birdlife. Drive carefully as the road is narrow with tight turns and there is always walkers and cyclists on the road.

“nice bush walk”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

We took our 18mth grandson for a walk here. We backpacked him up the hill and then he happily walked and ran the bush walk. Took a picnic lunch. Nice little streams, and some birds. I think you have to pick the time of day to hear the best of the birds. But just sitting in one area and listening while you have your picnic is good.
