Te Puna Quarry Park is being developed by a dedicated band of volunteers from a disused quarry into a world class park. This old scar on the hillside has already become a place of special beauty. From the upper levels there is a spectacular panoramic view out over the Bay. MORE
No play ground but plenty of room to run around and a shallow water way to splash in. There are also some nice short walk ways through the trees.
The park is partially accessible to vehicles and is open 8am – 8pm Spring and Summer during daylight saving hours and 8am – 5pm in Autumn and Winter. MORE
Very pretty falls with the look out down a very easy to walk gravel road. Easy road for a pushchair with good sized wheels, it does get a bit steep at the bottom and the last bit is narrow stairs. But its only a hundred meters ish to the view from there. Unfortunately you can’t get to the falls them selves, but its still worth the wander. MORE
