Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful waterfall - highly recommend. When we went there we got it all to ourselves which was really special. The only thing is that you have to go quite far down a gravel road to get there, however it is well worth it!

Beautiful falls which are a short walk from the 309 road. Lovely spot to cool down in the water and soak up the atmosphere.

Lovely little spot to stop for a quick dip in the water!
Only 1min from the road.
Not very big area to park cars.

The falls were really close to the carpark that we were in. You could see it from the start of the walk. There were a few people there but most of them just had a quick dip and then left since the water was a bit cold.
The area around the falls wasn't very big but it did extent all the way around most of the pool. It was also a bit of fun walking downstream and jumping along the rocks. We saw a few eels swimming around the river and pool which was nice.
The entrance was on 309 Road past Waterworks coming from Coromandel. Just keep an eye out for the entrance sign which might be covered by parked cars around the area.

Besides the windy gravel road that went on forever, it was a beautiful ride there. There were some farm pigs on the way there roaming around on the road outside their property that were absolutely adorable! There were a lot of people stopping and interacting with them. The walk to the falls itself was about a minute and it’s beautifully maintained and just super calm. Definitely a must see if you’re travelling around coromandel!

The 309 is 22 km of good old winding road, mostly gravel through both bush and farmland.. if you don’t have a pack of screaming kids, bypass The Waterworks and head a little further to a quieter dip in the cute falls with a cool pool at its base

This waterfall is like straight out of a story book, small and near perfect. If your in the area stop by and check it out.
The pool at the bottom is good for swimming in warm weather too....but be careful as the rocks underwater are slippery.
See photo ;)

We were desperate to get out and some of the walks around here are too long for our small children. This was 3 minutes in, easy walk and the kids played happily at the bottom. Good to go here before the Kauri Grove up the road

very nice short walk from the little parking to the falls, which are refreshing and not crowded by visitors - free of charge

30mins drive on the horrible roads leads you to a small ordinary waterfall. Certainly not worth the effort.
