Beautiful lake and walk in the bush where you can see the river and some nice swimming holes.

Really nice short walk in New Zealand. Do not stop at the falls, keep walking around the cascades.

If this walk was located on the main tourist trail, it would be super busy. Luckily it's off the beaten track and is one of the great short walks in NZ. The river here is so clear, it looks like it's come straight of a spring. Which is fitting as the geology has created cave systems so the water changes between a flow above and below ground. Many of the waterfalls seem to originate directly from a rock face. TIP - Don't stop at the Falls. Keep walking around the Cascades and further toward the Outlet as there's plenty to discover past the main falls. The most epic swimming holes in crystal clear water are a huge bonus on a hot day.

Absolutely breathtaking. From someone who has seen many of NZs waterfalls, trust me this is worth the visit. And the river has some sweet as swimming holes

Beautiful lake and walk through the bush where you can see the river disappear underground, then shoot out the cliff face later on.
