Fodor's Review

About 7½ km (4½ miles) from Coromandel, stop for a swim at Waiau Falls, a forest-fringed waterfall lagoon that's just a three-minute walk down a few steps from the road. The track starts close to the Waiau Falls Scenic Reserve sign. Additional walking tracks lead farther into the woods. Less than 2 km (1 mile) east of Waiau Falls, a series of easy, clearly marked gravel paths and wooden walkways takes you through lush forest to a protected giant kauri grove. The full walk takes about 15 minutes, but the trees are so majestic that you may want to allow a half hour to stroll through this ancient forest.
