    Wentworth Falls is so close to Whangamata you just have to go for the walk to get away from civilization. Great track, quiet, peaceful bush and fresh mountain air to breath. With a little gold mining history thrown in, why not go for a walk.

Wentworth Falls Walk Car Park

At the end of the road is a very good camp ground. We found the grounds well looked after and the toilets clean and tidy. Plus, you will have no problem finding a car park and the start of the track

Old gold mine

The track is excellent, no need for heavy tramping boots. For an area that has been mined the regrowth of native bush was open and not thick and scrubby. On our walk we did not hear a lot of NZ native birds singing up in the trees.

Wentworth Falls

The climb down to the base of the Wentworth Falls Walk was tricky this is where strong tramping boot will pay off. The water looked and tasted great. The river run’s way back into the bush so there should be not risk of contamination unless people has been in the water at the top of the falls.
