  • Needs 30 mins to reach the car park _ only 11km distance but the road is terrible. Another 30mina out and 1-2 hours walking. So require up to 3 hours to see this hole. Nearly half day is gone. Won't r...  more »

  • The road to this track is a bit sketchy and pot-holed but the walk is breathtaking. The forest at the begging is like no other I have seen so far in New Zealand and feels magical. The track splits near the end into two walks: Harwood Hole and The Lookout. Do both. They are both amazing. The Lookout was an incredible view and the rock formations are so unique. Both walks at the end are made for slow and steady and could easily be a bit dangerous, but the views are worth it as they are awe inspiring.
  • Off beat but easy track
  • Road is a bit of an "interesting" drive. But certainly worth it. Very different!
  • Lovely walk thru native forest, beautiful viewpoint is not to be missed
  • Very beautiful
