The waterfall itself is a bit of a letdown, it's very low (maybe 10 meters high). The 6km walking trail that starts next to the fall is a lot more interesting, nice forest trail and a part is a wooden parthway in a mangrove like...More

We were on our way from Opua to Cape Reigna and stopped here for a few photos. Nice size falls with pretty surroundings.

Went there to do the loop twice. Pleasant and non strenuous. Lots of beautiful views and definitely worth doing while staying there

The little water falls pales in comparison to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. It is a nice place to visit for approximately 5 minutes. It is a little park near Waitangi, New Zealand which is the " Birthplace of the Nation".

The falls are lovely and the walk back to Waitangi is easy and peaceful. Good track and bird song along the way. This is a good free excursion.
