Hunua Falls Reserve

233 Falls Road - 350m from the event site

The waterfall is gorgeous, and flows all year round. It's only a few minutes walk from the event-site.

There's a pretty, grassy picnic area, safe swimming in the river away from the falls, public toilets, and ample parking. It's the start of many bushwalks through stunning New Zealand forests. Walks are anything from 15 minutes to several hours. There's a good map near the carpark.

Bug-spray is useful against any mosquitoes.

Cosseys Reservoir

Cossey's Access Road - 3.5km from site by car, or 5km return on foot from the waterfall.

You can walk from Hunua Falls: it's beautiful, strenuous and takes a few hours. You can also drive directly in.
