Who cares that its already halfway through February? The sun is shining and there is still plenty to see! We’ve compiled a list of absolute must do’s before Winter’s back.
Here are the Top Things to See Before Summer’s Over
Piha has many reasons to visit, but Kitekite Falls is reason alone to visit. Walk 20 minutes along the Kitekite track to get to the base of the three-tiered waterfall. We’d definitely advise you to take the 10 minute walk to reach the rock pools over looking the top of the falls.
The Blue Springs is one of the prettiest things to see in the North Island. Supplying around 70% of New Zealand’s bottled water, The Blue Springs are some of the purest water you’ll find!
Arguably the best waterfall in the Auckland region, Mokoroa Falls is definitely worth the visit. The walk to the lookout is just 30 minutes, but we definitely recommend walking down to the base of the falls and seeing them in all their glory. For those brave enough, make sure you enjoy a shower right under the falls!
Nothing beats a natural hot spring and Kerosene Creek provides the goods. Hidden down a dirt road which was once only known to locals, Kerosene Creek is starting to popular for people to relax in the natural warm water.
A perfect stop on the way to Raglan, Bridal Veil Falls is a sacred area that is home to special waterfall that is over 50m high. Although the stairs to the base of the falls look daunting, we’d definitely recommend making the journey to the bottom
Nothing quite beats a fresh water swimming pool, and the pool at the Old Cement Works in Warkworth is greater than your average pool. Bring the kids, bring your friends, bring your dog – there’s fun abound to be had whether you’re the sort to launch yourself from the banks into the water below or you’re more interested in soaking up the sun and staying dry.
Although technically closed, it is still possible to access Omanawa Falls. As it is one of the prettiest waterfalls around, a number of people choose to climb down to the base. We can’t recommend anyone going down, but if you choose to do so take extreme care as many people have been injured.
Always worth a stop for anyone visiting the north. The Whangarei Falls is an impressive waterfall set right in the middle of suburbia. Again, we recommend the journey to the base of the falls
Famous for the Mermaid Pools to the north of the beach, Matapouri is definitely worth the visit. Although the path to the pools is steep and treacherous, you’ll be rewarded with the gorgeous rock pools.
