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 .

  • This is a fairly nice waterfall, but very disappointing at the same time. There is a good little bush track with a lovely forest around it. Maybe when I went there hadn't been much rain, as I found it...  read more »
  • Not far away from Raglan. Good for a trip with children. After u park the car there is still a bit of nice walking through the forest. Perfect place to take som nice pictures 
  • Amazing! Very secluded, we didn't see many others on our walk. Full walk from the top of the falls to the base can be done within and hour return. I loved this spot and highly recommend to all! 
  • What an unexpectedly beautiful high falls in the middle of the route to Raglan out on the Western Coast of gorgeous New Zealand!!! The trail to the falls was an easy hike for a couple in their sixties. The reward at the outlook was absolutely wonderful with a view that did not disappoint. Qu'est-ce une façon inattendue belles chutes élevées dans le milieu de la route pour Raglan sur la côte ouest de la Nouvelle-Zélande magnifique !!! Le sentier des chutes était une randonnée facile pour un couple dans la soixantaine. La récompense à la perspective était absolument magnifique avec une vue qui ne déçoit pas. Was für ein unerwartet schön hoch fällt in der Mitte der Strecke an der Westküste von wunderschönen Neuseeland Raglan heraus !!! Der Weg zu den Wasserfällen war eine leichte Wanderung für ein Paar in den Sechzigern. Die Belohnung am Ausblick war absolut wunderbar mit Blick auf die nicht enttäuschte. Che inaspettatamente belle cascate alte nel mezzo del percorso di Raglan sulla costa occidentale della splendida Nuova Zelanda !!! Il sentiero per le cascate era una facile escursione per una coppia sulla sessantina. La ricompensa alla prospettiva era assolutamente meraviglioso con una vista che non vi deluderà.
  • What an amazing and beautiful waterfall. Lovely walk down to the falls. It is 55 meters from the topmost point to the bottom. The best thing is there are 4 different viewpoints to see the waterfall. All very unique to each other. A must visit in the region.
  • Your own private waterfall... ..well almost! Being a little off the beaten track when we turned up there were only two other cars here meaning we pretty much had the falls to ourselves. The site is well maintained with a short 10 minute walk to the waterfall where there are four viewing platforms at various heights with steps through the forest easily linking them all. The waterfall is tall and dramatic whilst being surrounded by forest it feels like a quiet little oasis. Well worth the drive.
  • An easy walk to the top of the falls that is suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Lots of lovely picnic spots as well, that my husband and I made us of on a beautiful day. Lots of stairs (200+) to reach the bottom of the falls, but nice views. Unfortunately, the water is not safe for swimming, tempting as it was.
  • Beautiful and romantic place. Do not visit if you have knees or back problems :)
