Our clients say:

Hunua Falls are a wonderful facility for our school choirs. We enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and the facilities are very conducive to choral learning.

We have been using Hunua Falls camp for our autumn university students camp. It’s a camp which has great options for accommodation, a great kitchen for self catering, and two good areas for group meetings. The scenery is beautiful, and the grounds are great too for fun outside activities.

It follows a fence line for 400 metres then climbs steeply to meet the Wairoa to Cosseys Track at a point 1.7 km from Cosseys Dam. Your efforts are rewarded with some sweeping ridge top views. You’ll also discover a delightful rest area and magnificent kauri tree grove.

Massey Track Loop Walk

Pack a camera (waterproof container recommended) to capture the long range views from the ridge.
