Just a short drive out of Raglan, Bridal Veil Falls is more than just worth a look. A 10 minute walk to 2 spots to view the waterfall from the top. If you have more time you can walk down to the bottom of the...More

Worth the one hour drive it took to get there from Cambridge. You can see how the waterfall got its name. Looks great from the top viewing platforms but even better from below.

I genuinely don’t have the words to describe how incredible this waterfall is. You really do have to go and see it for yourself. Don’t be put off by the number of steps down to the bottom, it’s absolutely worth the climb. Honestly. You can’t...More

Worth a quick trip from raglan. You get wet so be ready for that. Mind tourist season or middle of the day as its a small platform.

A short pleasant walk to the falls through native bush. There had been heavy rain the previous night and the falls were well worth a visit. Over 200 steps if you go right to the bottom but the falls can be viewed from half way

Easy to find, I recommend that you visit in the very late afternoon. Later in the day, the sun is shining on the falls leading to a better picture. Half-way down is a beautiful platform for a selfie too!

Such an awesome experience. Walking out of the bush to hear and see the raw power of the falls. I’m really unfit and have a torn calf muscle, and I was still determined to walk down all of the stairs to see it at all...More

We were unable to walk to the bottom of the falls due to an injury that my husband had, but we were able to make it easily to the top two platforms and they give you a fantastic view of the falls anyway. The walk...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!
