A great walk. Like most waterfalls where you're at the bottom and need to trek to reach the top, this one is opposite. You come out at the top after about a 5-minute walk. The view is spectacular beyond words.

Very nice fall, the cliff is stunning. The water was not very clear though, it's a pity. There are 4 different lookouts, so you can admire the falls from different heights and sides

Nice easy walk to the top platform, well worth the walk to the bottom..... Loads of stairs, but it's not far, and beautiful.

And I have seen quite a few! Hands down one of the best things to see and do around Raglan (which is a pretty awesome place itself)

A lovely relaxing place to visit. We managed to easily walk down to the bottom of the falls with our 3 year old without too much effort. The view from the bottom is very impressive and well worth the walk down.

This was a gorgeous fall to visit. Easy walk from the car park to the top of the falls. Even more beautiful if you take the stairs down. Its a bit of a curvy drive from Raglan but the views along the way are worth...More

As others have said, it is a short track, but it depends on your fitness level as to how long it would take. You could easily do it within 30 minutes, but could allow longer for just enjoying. Enjoy!
