All Year
A historically significant site, the Te Toto Gorge south of Raglan, New Zealand not only boasts stunning and uninterrupted views of the rugged west coast, it also provides an insight into traditional Maori gardens.

This great short Waikato walk includes remnants of garden plots, stonewalls and karaka groves which have been dated back as far as the 1700 and 1800.

From the carpark, which is also used for those hiking Mount Karioi, a short track leads to a viewing platform which provides spectacular views of the coastline, gorge and amphitheatre where the Maori gardens once thrived. Beyond the lookout the track is unmarked through an open grassy area with a steep descent before flattening out closer to the coast.

Activity Duration:
30 minutes one way
Trail access:
Carpark located south of Raglan along Wainui Road. After Whale Bay the road is called Whaanga Road.
