  • I love this waterfall..As a Photographer i have been there couple of times...Easy to reach there from the parking area... carry some water or food of you want to enjoy some food while relaxing near this beautiful waterfall..it is only a 40 minute walk one side...
  • Amazingly beautiful waterfall, especially when it's previously rained and the Falls is at it fiercest. It's an easy 30 minute walk from Heays Access Road Carpark through stunning private land or a 5hrs return from Pohokura Road.
  • An impressive waterfall that you get to with an approximately 45 minute walk which is well worthwhile. The track is quite easy with some up and down hills.
  • Good sunday stroll with family. This is a grade 3 to 4 hike. 40mins to water fall tops.
  • I recommend going for a little swim!

Where to stay in Napier

pier boasts a range of accommodations, most located on the tip of land that ends at the Port of pier. From boutique Art Deco hotels and rental apartments to backpacker hostels, the central district offers options for many tastes and price ranges. With the city's buildings so attractive, a sea view may not be as much of a deal-breaker as it is elsewhere. Farther out of town, you can choose from an array of more economical motels, or at a campsite.
