    My wife and I thought this hike was a highlight of our recent holiday in New Zealand. Thanks for the directions. What views of the 360 degrees….all the way to the South Pacific Ocean.

  2. Julie Says:

    WOW, great hike! Fabulous 360 degree views. We stayed in the AIRBNB named “Prima a Situ” that is 30 meters from the Car Park. Walked up to the Rock this morning after coffee and before the kids got up. Beautiful hike 60 meters from my bed to one of the best views in the NorthLand.

    Thanks Julie for the AIRBNB name as it helps in the planning.
