Double Falls Track

Double Falls Track

Tawarau Forest


Time: 3 hr 30 min from Were Road or 2 hr from Appletree road end

You can reach these beautiful and secluded falls from Appletree Road end, or along the Gorge track. From Appletree Road end, a well-formed track takes you through regenerating native forest and then through a pine block on a forestry road for a short section. Check out the giant oyster fossils in the limestone outcrop.

The last 20 minutes is a steep descent to the falls. Between the two falls a stream disappears underground and reappears at the top of the second waterfall cascading over a mossy rockface. It is an idyllic spot at the bottom of a rocky gorge surrounded by bluffs and boulders - a perfect place to explore, have lunch and bathe your feet in the stream.
