Guthrie Smith Arboretum
Drive north on State Highway 2 towards Tutira, stopping off at the Tangoio Falls for a short walk up to the falls. Carry on up to the Arboretum, pick a shaded spot to lay down your picnic blanket and enjoy the view over the lake. If you're really energetic carry on up to Shine Falls and have a splash in the pool a the bottom of the Falls. The water can be quite chilly!
