Kitekite Falls Reviews & Ratings

  • Walk was great, wasn't too tiring and the waterfall was worth it!

  • Such a great walk. Easy for children

  • The track has reopened to the public on the 26th of Dec 2018, with new walkway covering to help combat the Kauri Die Back outbreak. Just keep to the walkways and the track will remain open.

  • Beautifull setting great

  • 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.
