It is a short walk to a stunning view. We did not expect it to be so big and beautiful and were overwhelmed.

A short walk to these falls which were nice but I would skip them if you are short on time.

Beautiful falls, easy access to the lookout but very muddy access to the river.

Glad we walked the short, well maintained trail to the beautiful falls. Loved that we were able to walk to the bottom of the falls and get drenched by the mist.

What a great place to visit - very well maintained track, by DOC. guys working there, also told us about Natural Bridge, and Ruakuri Bush Walk, both just up the road going towards Waitomo Caves - we started at Marakopa end, and all 3 get a 10/10 All 3 are free, and well worth the walks.

Situated on a long winding road, the falls are majestic + only a 5 minute walk from the carpark.

A short 5 minute walk to an amazing waterfall. And there's nobody there!
