Mountain
“⋒ Make sure to bring a water bottle as there are plenty of steps to the top of Mt. Manaia. ⋒ the platform overlooks Whangarei heads & is best seen for sunrise. Allow approx 45-1hr for climbing and 45 minute to the carpark. ⋒ Toilet facilities are on-site”

Park
“Historic park with the river running through ... feed the ducks or climb to the top of Parahaki or walk through connecting bush tracks to the Whangarei Falls, A H Reed Park (canopy bridge) or back towards the Town Basin via the aquatic centre and enjoy the boardwalk through the mangroves”

Park
“The walk between the Park and the waterfall follows the Hatea River. There are many picnic spots and fresh water swimming holes. This is an easy walk, with some short steep climbs, that is suitable for all ages and it is a popular running track for many locals.”

Park
“Very beautiful waterfall, either view it from the platforms, or walk all the way from there to town....about 2.5 hours....easy walk. Grab a map from the I-Site office for trail directions (there is a road about half way that you have to follow that is a little confusing)!”
