We entered through the top of the falls, went through the foot bath to aid with Kauri Dieback issues. We walked to the bottom of the falls, so not the entire track. Quite steep climb coming back up

The fall are set in woodland, and there are easy walks that you can do here. Some people also chose to swim in the pool at the bottom of the pools. Car parking, and toilets.

Swim under the falling water and look up, let yourself drift with the current. Leave your troubles behind. It’s beautiful.

Good parking with a short (5 minute) and easy walk to the falls through some lovely forest. Swimming was easy, though be careful where you enter as the rocks are slippery. We went with 2 kids aged 3 and 6 and they loved it. Well...More
