Description

It’s an equally lovely walk through tranquil native bush up to the falls (about 20mins) and the viewing platform that provides a bird’s-eye view over the cascading waters.

Here the hard basalt rock which has resisted the erosive power of the river forms the ledge from which these spectacular 55m waterfalls drop.

The walkway which is suitable for pushchairs and assisted wheelchair use – follows the Pakoka River most of the way.

Viewing platforms at the top provide a spectacular view of the waterfalls and surrounding area.

A section of steep steps takes you down to another viewing platforms.

You can swim in the pools, but be warned it’s pretty cold!

The Bridal Veils car park is on Kawhia Road.
