“walk through the forest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Walk through the forest see tbe old Kauri tree and then walk by the rippling river to the waterfall. Up over tbe top and view it from above
Doesn't cost anything and is a lovely walk through the country side.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Accessibility to this fall is great . It is in the town area. Parking is limited , but we managed to get one . Toilets available at the car park . Waterfall is small , with many viewing spots. You enter at the top of the fall . Staircases lead you down to the bottom of the fall . A short 10 mins walk will bring you down . We went there after lunch at nearby Town Basin. It was rather crowded with kids and dog playing in the stream and lots of visitors . No fee required.

“Beautiful falls”

There was a beautiful falls. I have seen some falls in Northland, this falls was the most I think. Firstly, you can look down the falls. After 5 minutes walk, you can arrive under falls. I think this view was very good. If visit there, go under falls. Very good falls.

“A nice place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Good views of the falls with an easy circular walk down to the falls and back up to the car park. There were picnic areas as well for those wanting to stay longer.
