The Wairere Boulders are world unique. They exist due to a unusual and very specific set of circumstances that started 2.8 million years ago, and continue to this day. Your tramp begins at the cafe and info shed, so if you want a coffee before you head off into the valley, thats no problem. The info shed is packed with photos and stories which tell the you about the history, geology and people who have been important to the Wairere Boulders and our part of the Hokianga Habour. Here you can pick up your map of the reserve and clues to find our hidden rock animals for the kids. Dogs are not permitted on the trails due to our predator control program, and risks to livestock and kiwi. They can be exercised in the campground.

The boulders and the way are very nice but for 15 p p too expensive



All the years visit the Giant Boulders,it is the best to see in Northland!!!



The gravel road is in good condition, only 6 km gravel from State Highway 12, and only 3 km gravel from State Highway 1. All the rest is sealed with very little traffic. If you are a normal driver you will have no prolem at all. A lot of South Islands access roads to tourism attractions are far worth.
