  • Well worth stopping here... much quieter and less people in my experience than other areas and walks around tongariro... a must see. Waterfall has 2 viewing areas and is very pleasant
  • So close to the road for all the family to easily enjoy. We love seeing how it changes during the year too. Beautiful spot
  • Beautiful waterfall. The original photos didn't do it justice. With the 2 viewing areas it's very easily worth the 5 minute walk.
  • Great 30 min return walk right inside about 6km from main road, towards Whakapapa village. Best views.
  • Brilliant short walk to lovely Falls. Easy access and off road parking.
