  • There’s an hour drive from Napier, a 40 minute walk opening up to the falls! Glorious! It’s a relatively easy walk if you’re somewhat fit and coordinated. Well worth the effort of getting there  more »
  • Breath taking, lovely falls. Gravel road to the falls and a long walk to the base of the falls, but worth the reouble  more »
  • Spectacular falls, beautiful walk. Perfect nature activity for moderately fit and above, recommended for kids about 6 and up. One of the most beautiful falls I’ve ever seen. We had a good splash at the base. The bottom is sandy and comfortable once you get past a few meters of rocks.
  • It'll take about an hours walk, but once you get to the end of the track, you'll be rewarded with an amazing waterfall that definitely took me by surprise by just how big it is. A great day trip for anyone. Highly recommended!
