Great views

Steep narrow road, but be brave and try it, worth the views from the top and photo opportunity. Handy to town, I drove from the top end coming down to the views. Not many parking spots though.

Fabulous views of water and inland

Well worth the trip up to the lookout. You gain a much better appreciation of the overall area with both inland and water views. Access is by 2 ways...you can drive to the lookout (very small parking area) however you still need to climb about 24 steps....no shade at top of lookout and surface although grassed is a little uneven.
The alternate access is 109 steps up to the small parking area from the Town Centre main street. The Visitor info lady said 64 steps...god love her, I don’t think she can count. Any way despite being an unhealthy 67 year old and my partner with 2 very dickie knees, we did it...well worth it. You can see White Island still clouded in smoke...a reminder of the tragic loss of life last year.

One of the best LookOut at Whakatane

Wrong name in TA, it should be PUKETAPU, not PuketapA. Anyway this lookout on top of the rock hill gives a really picturesque view, a place to catch excellent photos of north side of the city centre toward Muriwai Head (or Whakatane Head) to the tributary of Whakatane River to the sea. Two ways to reach this place, an easier way by car to the limited parking spaces at the start of 5-10 minutes climbing track to this place, or a bit exercise way by walking start from the city centre behind the huge rock, Puhaturoa Rock, and then step uphill through Whakatane Vertigraph, a 43 horizontal panels on vertical glazed tiles steps, named Te Mana o Papa, a 5-10 minutes walk to the starting point adjacent to the parking spaces. Just remember, because this Lookout is positioned facing to the north, its best photos captured toward Muriwai Head is when the sun is set, at the late afternoon. The reward is beautiful picturesque views on amazing horizon.

Stunning spiritual look out

Stunning views overlooking Whakatane and out to see with White Island clearly visible. A place where you can feel at one with yourself and find peace. Go up early in the morning and enjoy a cooked breakfast at nearby Robert Harris. They do a mean breakfast!

fantastic views

A great lookout point ,where we always take people who visit us in Whakatane.
It is easily accessed by car from town, [no campervans though ], and there is roadside parking for a few cars. If you are fit enough for the climb up the path and steps, this is a "must see ’ view point.

The view is worth the climb

This is easily accessed from the town centre BUT you have to be prepared for a lot of steps - some of which have interesting mosaics. The view from the top was great and made the climb worthwhile.
