We didn’t do much in Whangarei. We just stopped by Whangarei Falls on the way out of town. The falls are 26.3 meters high. The hiking trail is a loop, allowing us to view the falls from all angles. There is a bridge that crosses over the falls, and then the trail leads down to the front of the falls. Interestingly, the bridge has no handrails. The trail then leads back up to the other side. Being able to view the waterfall from all sides was fantastic.
