Customer Travel Tip: Hike around Mt Parihaka lookout, the Falls and Abbey Caves.

Liked: The Falls and Abbey Caves (especially Organ Cave with the numerous glowworms). The fact that they're free as opposed to the totally expensive and too touristy Waitomo Caves.

Disliked: Didn't really like downtown. Construction and just felt very trafficky.
