We set off at 7.30am and were greeted by a very jolly kiwi driver called Barry. Our first stop was ‘Puketi Kauri Forest’, where we saw similar trees to yesterday and were encouraged to hug …
After a very cold night, we woke early. The mountains looked amazing. Behind us we could the clouds beginning to roll in and engulf the hills. We were on the road by 9.15am.

TravelPod Member ReviewsFalls Motel & Waterfront Campground Paihia
We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.
We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.
We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.
