Kawhia Rd, Makomako 3895, New Zealand, North Island.


Walk to the top and down to the base of these spectacular 55 m falls. The track is to the top of the falls is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. It is an attractive easy walk through native forest following the Pakoka River to the top of the Waireinga/Bridal Veil Falls. This section of track is designed for assisted wheelchair use and is suitable for childrens pushchairs. The two viewing platforms at the top of the falls provide spectacular views of the falls and surrounding countryside. From here, the track descends steeply down stairs to a midway viewpoint. The track continues down more stairs to the bottom view bridge and information shelter where there is a magnificent view directly across the pool and up at the falls. No dogs. No swimming - water quality does not meet health standards for swimming.

Very nice waterfall, it's worth it



Really nice waterfall I was wondering how all those people can know how many steps there are to go to the bottom platform. It's written down before you start to walk downstairs :D



Layby parking and gorgeous walk through forest, easy access for children's buggies. Beautiful falls!!! Great viewing platform at top middle and bottom, 240 steps down if I remember rightly?? I carried my little one in a carrier. Well worth a visit! Beautiful!
