This was a great way to finish the day. Casual, stress-free walk through beautiful bush surroundings. The sound of a small river was very tranquil before opening up to the main springs. This area was just stunning with a crystal clear spring. We went towards...More

The turnoff to the spring is just north of Takaka. From the parking area it's a short walk to the huge spring bubbling out of the ground. There are lots of ducks and birds in the area and it's a nice place to enjoy the...More

Beautiful short walk while you are breathing the fresh air to the most amazing spring. It’s nice for children to know there are still pure water available on earth.

A lovely and easily accessible walk suitable for strollers and wheelchairs too. A loop track takes you though some glorious woodland to the Spring which is amazingly beautiful. Gushing 14,000 litres a second it is also mesmerisingly thought provoking. There were pairs of Paradise Shelducks...More
