Well worth the walk to reach it. The waterfall is quite impressive. But there was a barrier to prevent people from stepping right up to the viewing platform as the far edge of the platform had collapsed. So stay safe and stay behind the barrier. You can still get a very good view.

Amazing waterfalls. One of the better ones I've seen in New Zealand.
Short 10 min return walk, track is good however the lookout has had a washout so the end of it is closed. But you are still able to see the waterfall well and take photos etc. Not sure how long it will take to fix. Otherwise don't miss this.

Nice little 5-10 min through the bush down to the viewing point which is actually closed from a washout. You can still see the falls from a distance but cant really get close enough for any good photos or views.

Amazing waterfall -rather windy road to drive to get there though from waitomo village. Only a short walk from the road. The end of the viewing platform has been washed out from slip and cordoned off and due to slip you can’t currently walk down to bottom of slope. Not sure how long it will take for this to be fixed. Overall a very impressive waterfall. If you have headed out to this waterfall make sure to also see Piri Cave and the Natural bridge which are also short walks slightly longer than this one though

Great excitement with the roar of water in our ears and the spray in our hair. Just a easy walk from the road.

Worth seeing this beautiful waterfall if you are in the waitomo area. Narrow road leading to it though.

One of my most favourite waterfalls in New Zealand. An easy walk down to the viewing platform from the road a great experience for the whole family. Just stunning and many other awesome spots along this road to visit. Make a day of it, and take a picnic.

Nice short walk down to the spectacular waterfall. It's all uphill back to the carpark from the waterfall, but takes no more than 15 minutes. No toilet facilities here. Check out the other nearby free short walks: Piripiri Cave, The Waitomo walkway, Opapaka Pa walkway and the Mangapohue Natural bridge.

A not too far away trip from Waitomo allows you to visit a completely beautiful spot.
It is a short walk from the road and then be ready for a magnificent view.

Short downhill walk from the car parking area through bush. Spectacular waterfall at the end of the walk.
