I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.
I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!

This tranquil shaded walk is ideal to attempt with a young family. The large play area at the carpark has picnic tables and the walk adds to the activities you could do to tire the kids out.
The moss encrusted rocks of the small stream culminate in the bowl excavated by the waterfall. Nice setting for a swim.
12 km from Gisborne along Back Ormond Road, turn right into Waihirere Domain Road and continue 1.5 km to a large parking area by the playground and toilets. Cross the small footbridge and head past the dried up swimming pool. The start of the track continues up the gully.
The track follows a small stream through lush forest to a waterfall.
