Nau mai, haere mai

I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.

I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!

Locally known as Darbys Falls, the twin falls are given a tropical air by the young nikau nearby.


The start of the track is signposted from the northern end of Ship Cove.

You’ll need to organise water taxi transport to get here.


The well formed track climbs through the lush forest to the waterfall behind the cove.
