  • This is a great day event if you’re looking to escape to somewhere extremely quiet with spectacular views. The drive in is a long dirt road only wide enough for one vehicle to get to the campsite...  more »
  • Driving 11km on a tricky dirt road is not for everybody's nerves but the award is big. Walking first an easy way through the forest with trees hundreds of years in the making ends at Harwoods Hole...  more »
  • A nice long walk through the rugged bush to the cave. Be sure to take the track off the side which crawls up the hillside opening onto expansive views off the cliff face.
  • The road to this track is a bit sketchy and pot-holed but the walk is breathtaking. The forest at the begging is like no other I have seen so far in New Zealand and feels magical. The track splits near the end into two walks: Harwood Hole and The Lookout. Do both. They are both amazing. The Lookout was an incredible view and the rock formations are so unique. Both walks at the end are made for slow and steady and could easily be a bit dangerous, but the views are worth it as they are awe inspiring.
