Mclaren Falls Park
Ideal for walkers, McLaren Falls Park contains great spots for fishing, kayaking, barbecues, picnics, and camping. Just a ten-minute drive from the center of Tauranga, these 190 hectares (469 acres) of parkland stretch out beside Lake McLaren.
Look for the extensive botanical collection of trees, and hike the short, easy trail to the waterfalls. Free gas barbecues are dotted around the park for the public to use. Note that the falls are home to glowworms - though they can only be spotted after dusk.
Open Everyday 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM
