Otuihau Whangarei Falls is a picturesque waterfall, falling vertically for 26.3 metres over basalt cliffs. Three viewing platforms allow easy access to the dramatic views and a circular walk around the falls allows them to be seen from all angles
Whangarei - Interesting tall falls seen from an easy stroll just past carpark, or down a lovely bush track to view from the bottom pool looking up
You can walk to the bottom of falls to the right for a gradual slope. To the left is a staircase. Follow the river to reach the Kauri canopy walk in the tree tops. Round loop approx 1 hour, flat terrain.
