A thundering creek falling to the Haast River. Prosaic, these Westland names. This is the second in the trifecta of falls on the Haast Highway, also including Roaring Billy Falls and Fantail Falls.
This is a brief & beaut stop in Westland's Haast Pass. A wheelchair accessible few minutes through silver beech forest brings you to the 28m high Thunder Creek falls, most thunderous after a classic West Coast rainfall...
The track is signposted on SH6 52 km from Haast Junction.
The sealed track takes you to a viewpoint by the 28 metre high falls.

21Oct18. I agree with Katrina. A nice stop off with a good waterfall but not much else.
A brief stopoff. No more to explore - in, photo, out. Busy with tourists...average compared to the other gems in the area.

Close to the river, clean.
Lovely walk to falls and good waterfall.

Short walk from the road to a nice waterfall, worth a picture.
Lots of fun to do these short walks.
Yikes! This waterfall is almost directly on the highway, making it a must-stop for EVERY tour bus over Haast Pass. What's the big deal...a nice waterfall spilling across an uncrossable river crowded with tourists. yuck. Now the waterfalls at Rob Roy glacier out of Wanaka...those are breathtaking!!
Just a few minutes walk to see an impressive waterfall, good parking nearby.

Worth a stop. Lovely forested walks. Easily accessed by all.
Very convenient that you don't have to make a long walk to see this marvellous site.
Spectacular with easy access.
Easy trek to a wonderful waterfall that is right on the side of the road. A nice little stop off along the way.
lovely falls with nice scenery sit at the side of the road. Lovely!
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
