Easy walk from ample car park and the attraction is free. As a retired geography teacher I actually came across something I didn't know here - epitrophic speleothems!!! Well worth taking half an hour to stretch your legs and enjoy.

The Natural Bridge is a quick 5-10 minute walk off of the Te Anga road and one of the most stunning sights we saw in New Zealand. The collapsed cavern is like something out of an adventure movie. The views from the bridge are stunning!...More

This is one of the highlights on our Waikato Trip! Little walk (could be easily made accessible for dogs, but isn't ;-(. This is as great place to stop and see what amazing places NZ has to offer!

Was not expecting it to be this beautiful! Easy walk to get there and when you see it, there are no words to explain its beauty except it's a must visit! Definitely a "hidden" gem ... Fell in love with the place!

We enjoyed the walk to the bridge and up and around the mount. Take good walking boots. It's not long, about half an hour. But interesting

Don't get me wrong, it was cool to see and a nice short Hike. Just not all that it is cracked up to be. It is on the way to Marokopa Falls so not out of the way if you are going there. The drive...More

A short, wonderful walk back into the bush to see this natural bridge. About 10 minutes round trip on a flat, well maintained trail that includes a swinging bridge, well placed viewing platforms and a wooden deck walkway above the river built into the sides...More
