Visited Thursday 1st September. Well worth going to have a look at and walk the loop which takes you to the bottom of the falls. Relative easy walk on a pathway with a few steps and can be done in about 20mins. If you do not want to do that there are two viewing areas at the top near the... More

This is a small piece of Paradise. You can walk through some of the beautiful Fauna of New Zealand and hear the tranquility of the falls and birds. If you are pushed for time this is a must see.

Be cautious over your vehicle security - do not leave any items behind , that you can not afford to be without ! Enjoy the magic of watching these Falls , & allow time to experience their magic by walking the Loop , & seeing them from the bottom up .

This is a very lovely waterfall which you can view via a 1 km walk from the top, both sides and the bottom. Well worth it

They have since improved the car parks and toilet facilities which will be great for tourists with the upcoming summer season. This is a beautiful and must-see location, even if for a pitstop! The walk can be a short one that will take you around the waterfall or you can take the long one which will take you along the... More

Dont leave any valuables in your vehicle as there are thieves watching and waiting to break in while you are looking at the falls.If you cant remove all your guffa then leave someone at the vehicle or suffer ths consequences.Heaps of tourists have lost their passports money cameras etc.
