Bridal Veil Falls, Raglan

4.8
See the dramatic Bridal Veil Falls, shooting out from the basalt cliff face and plunging into the rock pool below. Reach the top of the cliffs via a short walk through the flourishing tawa tree forest, and admire the 55 m (180 ft) falls from above at the first two viewing platforms. Halfway down a steep set of steps you will find a third viewing platform, and at the very bottom a viewing bridge offering additional vistas of the surrounding area .

  • Raglan's pride and joy as far as waterfalls are concerned. There are three viewing platforms levels, a short walk will lead you to the top of the falls from there it's 261 steps to the bottom with a viewing platform about halfway down and a platform at the bottom.
  • . (02/2017) Amazing waterfall. Easily accessible. You can choose to have a top-down view from the fist viewpoint after a short walk or you can continue walking down the stairs to have best view of the waterfall from the bottom. Due to being very high one, you are prohibited from getting into water or swimming here. Surreal views. Well maintained walkway and bridge viewpoint at the the bottom of waterfall.
  • Amazing 55m water fall with great view points from the top to bottom of the falls The walk down and back is fine for anyone of general fitness
  • Easy short walk to the top. Hundreds of stairs to the bottom, but good that the hard work climbing them is on the way back.
  • 10min wulk from car park. Well all good I was scared of heights but I push my self out top of the look out top of falls 55mter drop if it's brakes haha. All good . Take kids
