TAP FOR MORE INFO:

In the heart of the Waitomo District, you’ll find one of the most beautiful waterfalls in New Zealand. 

About 31km west of Waitomo on Te Anga Road, a 15-minute bush walk through the Tawarau Forest will take you to the Marokopa Falls – often rated as one of New Zealand’s best.

When rain hits the area, the 35m-high falls are a powerful force to behold as the Marokopa River cascades over the soaring greywacke bluff.  

The best place to see the falls is from the spacious viewing platform at the end of a short track through nīkau and tawa forest.
