Te Ana Falls crash into a cylindrical crater they have excavated. The breath of the water’s plunge causes the ferns and mosses adorning the cavern walls to glisten and the fine misty spray is a life saver on a hot day.


The start of the track is signposted from Tangoio Falls Scenic Reserve carpark, 27 km north of Napier on SH2.


The even and wide track may have a few muddy patches to negotiate on the gentle ascent alongside the Kareaara Stream. There is a short loop to access the falls.
