  • 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.

  • Short walk to a pretty waterfall. 900m return
