Don't expect one of the countless falls you can find in NZ. It's a small one. But it has its magic. We could spend a moment there, sitting and enjoying the view and the coolness of the water after a hot day walking in the...More

We went through the mangrove forest (only possible at high tide) some of the way and came quite near to the great masses of water from the waterfall!

A small waterfall good top and bottom views for the photographers you would need to see the best times for sun etc to make the most of the falls. If you are in the area worth a visit

Only one minute walk, to get to the waterfalls. Not special and I wouldn’t come by especially just to look at them

No overnight camping at the car park that I could see when visited last week. There is the Falls Motel & Waterfront Campground on Puketona Road, perhaps look up their website if you’re still interested in a paid camp site...
