Beautifully peaceful place rich with birdsong, with some fascinating geology and superb views....

Two options for hiking, one is 30 minutes return to see the caves and the other is 1 hour 30 minutes return just a loop through the woods. A man was hunting there with his dogs, other than that we were alone. It's a steep incline and parts of the trail had fallen trees from a mudslide. Do not go if it's raining!! Very slippery and steep. Beautiful natural forest and peeking views to the gorge but not what we expected. A great workout, the views are okay, and not a very safe trek in wet weather. Maybe on a sunny day it's more rewarding.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Nice walk along gorges with ocean views.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
