Over the years this a morphed into quite a popular tourist destination. It is great that on the weekends, with the amount of visitors, there are a hiviz-clad traffic/security personnel to look mind the carpark - this was a notorious haunt for light-fingered sciopaths hell-bent...More

Easy to park and walk across to see the falls. You can get good views and take some pictures too. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Whangarei.

Our B&B host recommended a short side trip to the falls. They were well worth seeing and the circular walk was well worth it to get a front on view of the falls. If you don’t want to do the walk you can get a...More

If you are passing through Paihia the falls are worth a sidetrip while you're passing the way anyway. Take the exit with the sign directing to the falls in Haruru (Highway 11). You can park directly at the falls.

Stopped here to stretch legs on a road trip. Free to visit. Waterfall is small, but quite pretty. Good walkway, carpark & toilet facilities. Well kept, clean area. Be a nice spot for a picnic.

Worth a visit, a short, easy but pleasant walk top to bottom then back up the other side. Steps, not wheel chair accessible.

Amazing that such a sight is in the middle of a city. Really picturesque falls with multiple viewing angles. Only down side is the colour of the water.

We were recommended to call in here whilst on our drive. It's just a few minutes off the main state highway. We enjoyed the Falls, they aren't spectacular like obvious Falls elsewhere, but it's a decent place to have a stretch and enjoy nature whilst...More
