Rent a car and drive to the west of Auckland. Go to the Visitor centre first and decide which one you will do. Half an hour to the fall. One hour a return.

Some of the best Nikua Palm forest to walk in in NZ. Well laid out track and you can do a loop at the end. might get you feet wet after heavy rain but otherwise easy track.

The day we walked was a bit rainy, but the scenery is just stunningly beautiful! Because of the wet weather, some areas of the trails were a bit slippery. It's a bit of an uphill climb but I'm 60 and I was able to manage...More
