Nga Tapuwae o Toi, or the 'Footprints of Toi', is an exceptional walkway which captures the essence of the Whakatane district.
The Karangahake Gorge region combines gold mining history and natural beauty, much of it accessible through a variety of walks.
Meander your way through bush from Te Wairoa to Hot Water Beach Campsite. Stay overnight or pre-book a water taxi to The Landing.
Follow an old tramline (1898 - 1928) on a relatively flat track through the spectacular Waitawheta Gorge - with interpretation panels as well, it's a great option for kids.
