Wentworth Falls Walks

  • Track category: Walking track
  • Time: 2 hr 30 min return
  • Distance: 3 km

This track, from the Wentworth campsite to Wentworth Falls, follows an easy grade alongside the Wentworth River, with two bridged crossings, before climbing to a good view of the falls. The falls are in two drops of about 20 metres each. From here, a steeper tramping track leads to a basin at the top of the falls.

Experienced trampers can continue on to cross the main range (Maratoto - Wentworth Crossing).

Mines Walk

  • Track category: Short walk
  • Time: 30 min to picnic area
  • Distance: 1 km

This walk starts at the concrete ford at the end of Wentworth Valley Road and passes through regenerating forest beside the river. There are two mine shafts visible from the track before it drops down to the the stream opposite the picnic area. Carefully assess water levels before attempting to cross the stream.

Getting there

Turn off SH25, 7 km south of Whangamata on the Coromandel Peninsula, into Wentworth Valley Road.
