“The track runs between the Waterfall road carpark to the spectacular falls, where water surges out of fissures in a high cliff face.”
Follow the track that leaves the carpark heading upstream along the Tarawera River. You will reach a bridge crossing over Tarawera River and the track continues upstream until you arrive at the falls viewing area where you can fully appreciate their splendour. Signs at the viewpoint explain the cultural and natural significance of the area.
Back-track to return to the carpark or continue along the tramping track to Tarawera Outlet (approximately another 2 hours one way).
Note: There is structural damage on the Tarawera Falls Track. The track has been re-routed to allow access to and from the falls however caution is required.
Facilities: A toilet is located at the carpark. There is a viewing area with a seat at the falls.
