Kitekite Falls, Auckland Reviews

  • Nice entry level hike route. Even in hot summer mid day, you will feel cool to walk here. Once you reach the waterfall, would suggest to take extra hike to go up on top of the waterfall. Enjoy the water, view and small pool up there. Fresh water to enjoy in hot summer day.

  • Well the car park is nothing much to write about, but it's an easy hike to the bottom of the falls, and a short steep extra walk to get to the top and enjoy the fantastic view

  • Such a manageable walk to see an incredible force of nature, safe car park too!

  • Beautiful and comfortable hike up to the falls

  • Plenty of parking even on public holiday. We had a great time with friends. Went on a public holiday, so cool to see other aucklanders was buzzing
