This is an amazing piece of geography. The walk to Harwood's Hole is through a birch wood forest which on the day we went was so still and quiet it feels like something out of a fantasy novel. The hole itself is huge, almost beyond belief. To get a good view you do have to climb a few rocks, which... 更多
Take the long hravel road to the carpark, do the walk through the stunning forest, hang around the hole and the 2 lookouts overseeing the upper Takaka area and then: have a coffee or a real fruit ice cream at the Woolshed cafe back at the main road.
We were on a relaxing day trip from Kaiteriteri to Takaka when we came across the road sign for Harwoods Hole Walk 11 km off Highway on dusty unsealed road. But it was well worth it. Parked the car in the shade and set off on the 45 min easy walk through wonderful beech forest with glimpses of blue sky... 更多
This hike is wonderful! The drive about 1.5 hours from Nelson City center and well worth it. The google map link on here took us to 93 wharf road but there was still 40 minutes drive that remained. Make sure to take SH 60 all the way up the mountain and you will come to a company that does cave... 更多
After two failed attempts to get up the road, we finally made it to the carpark on our third attempt. We are glad we kept trying because the walk to the hole went through a forest unlike any others we have walked through in New Zealand. The view of the hole once you get there leaves you wishing you could... 更多
We visited Harwood's Hole today in the worst possible weather but it was worth it and made the forest walk seem more mystical and magical (even though we were soaked and walked through a million puddles getting our shoes all wet). Climbing over all the rocks made the walk more fun and an adventure. We didn't get much of a... 更多
An easy walk through beech forest with bird-song. However, as you get close to Harwoods hole the terrain becomes suitable only for people with agility as the ground is very rocky. The Hole is impressive and awe inspiring. There is also an option to walk up to the right of the hole to see amazing karst rock formations with a... 更多
We walked this on a early morning in winter - the drive in to the walk is very scenic and the walk is pretty. One has to be of reasonable fitness though as there is a fair amount of rock clambering at the end. In winter the rocks are icy and slippery so we did not venture too close to... 更多
