The location is stunning. There are multiple view points made, so you can see the falls from many angles (right on top, top from the side, further down and from bellow). The only downside is the climb back up the stairs to the top, but the view is worth it!

Bit of a drive to see a waterfall. Great signage and storytelling. I think Raglan has more to offer or could do more with this attraction to be honest.

If you're driving on the road to Raglan, you must stop and check this out. It was raining the day I went and still worth it!

This waterfall was incredible, it almost does not seem real. It is unlike anything I have ever seen. There are multiple look outs along the walk from the very top (literally looking down and viewing it fall from the top) all the way to the bottom to view it. We went during the day and it wasn't very busy, I... More

An easy walk, a lot of stairs however to a wonderful water fall. Easy track that only takes 10minutes.

The falls are impressive and the walk through native bush pretty and not too arduous but what really struck was the terrible water pollution from dairy farming-the water is dead!

This is a great activity to do whilst visiting Raglan. It is not far out fo town and the walk to the bottom of the waterfall is easily doable. I love the bottom viewing area as well. We went whilst it was raining and it was equally beautiful. Well worth the trip !!

It's definitely worth a see... The only reason I don't give it a 5 is you can't swim here.... But it is great to do to get away from the beach for a little while...

Fantastic view of a natural waterfall at its best. The roads leading here are well signposted, and there is a proper area for car parking. It is a easy to walk in to where the waterfall is and there are signboards explaining the history of the area. Be aware that the steps leading down are pretty steep. Its worth it... More
