Purakaunui Falls Road, Purakaunui

The Pūrākaunui Falls is one of New Zealand's iconic, most-photographed sights.

The 15 minute return track to the falls trails through mature beech and podocarp forests, and is suitable for wheelchair users to the top viewing platform. From there the track descends to give you the stunning view of the three-tiered falls that’s often seen on calendars and postcards.

There is a carpark, toilets and a picnic area at the beginning of the track to these falls.
