Take a walk and a dip at Whangārei Falls

There’s something about waterfalls that’s a little bit magical. All the better when they’re both easily accessible and classically beautiful, like Otuihau Whangārei Falls. Just ten minutes from Whangārei CBD, the falls are a great spot for picnics, bush walks and spending time in nature. A classic curtain shape, the Otuihau Whangārei Falls fan across basalt cliffs and plunge more than 26 metres into a deep pool that’s popular for summer swimming. Three viewing platforms provide easy access and photo opportunities of dramatic views, while a circular track around the falls allows you to appreciate them from all angles. Historically a good eeling spot for local Māori, the land was purchased in the late 1920s by Archibald Clapham, reportedly to stop the waterfall from being developed as a commercial mill. Later, in 1946, the local Whangārei Businessman’s Association raised the purchase price by public subscription and the property became the public domain that it is today. AA AATraveller Must Done
