I stopped here to stretch the legs & take a break from driving. The views here are breath-taking looking out among the vast land.

Great views over whakatane. Perfect photo opportunity’s and a nice place to just sit down and enjoy. The road turns to gravel half way up but its maintained fairly well.

On the road between Whakatane and Ohope Beach, it is a short drive to the top, and provides a nice view of essentially all of Whakatane. Not a destination in itself, but a nice side stop if travelling between Whakatane and Ohope Beach.

Even more spectacular as the sun goes down. THe night sky is amazing and looking down on the lights of the town adds to the magic.

Gorgeous views, and the perfect spot for a picnic with the family. Watch out for the fences next to it as sometime they are on and kids can get a shock if they touch them

Worth going up to this lookout. Great for all the family. Wear shoes as some walking on grassed areas. Good place to stretch your legs and children to have a run around. Met a local up here who was keen to chat and share ideas...More
